“You can find an excuse for any game,” said head coach Zach Prince. “We could find some excuse for this game if we wanted to, but you got to search for that, and we’re not looking to search for excuses, we look to seek opportunity. And so saying that, I think the guys have done a good job focusing on what we can control, and that’s just ourselves.”
