We sat our top seven guys to rest them for the weekend which allowed our second team guys and a few others the opportunity to play more minutes. I was pleased with the effort on the court but especially pleased iwth the bench support from our starters. This is just one more step bringing us together as a team. Everyone was really happy for Ben and his accomplishment."
