He won the ccc player of the week.

He talked to me for this week's amateur athlete.

çááápkgáááÑ great.

Um, that was awesome to get that i was happy for myself and to get those two wins against southern as a collective effort, that was a awesome weekend.

And it felt good to get that award coming into a game like that where there's no, there's no post-season to look forward to, but there's a rival in town.

What kind of mentality do you take your game like that?

Yeah, i mean, uh, at this point, you know, we're just trying to take advantage of the games we got and so we have to go into every weekend and.

Yeah, we, we kind of, uh, hit a point in the game and we got together and were like, look guys, it's it's now or never.

Um, i think we were down 15, 17 at one point and we just kind of had to make a decision where are we going to fight back or not?

And so we started to turn it on and picked it up on defense and.
