COACH FORAKER SAYS…

  • ”It’s been an emotional rollercoaster for us this week with injuries and illness. I think we did run out of gas as we didn’t have as many people to play. We just didn’t execute the way we should have at the end. And we didn’t shoot the way we usually do. We just weren’t hitting it.
