Coach Kroll Quote of the Week
"We're all looking forward to starting Big Sky Conference play this weekend for what should be a real shootout. The team has been working very hard and I believe we're ready to go. It will be important for everyone to play to their potential because we are playing away against two very good teams. Our non-conference play has prepared us for this weekend, so we'll see soon enough where we stand as a team."
