NOTBALE QUOTABLE

"We knew coming in that no matter what happened last night (an emotional win against reigning division champion Point Park on Sept. 15), it all depended on how we played today. We knew we were all tired after a long game yesterday and battling as hard as we did, so we knew we had to come in with the same energy and motivation and make sure we were mentally prepared to come into today ready and focused for the match." - IU East's Taylor McKinney
