Explorers facing tough road games


We are on our way to Charlotte. Our next three A-10 games are at Charlotte, at Xavier and at UMass. The first half of our A-10 schedule is about as tough as it gets. We have to get some wins and I feel at some point we will put a winning streak together.

We were extremely disappointed in our showing against Temple. We have great respect for them. We are very frustrated we did not challenge them more. We have numerous theories besides the obvious fact that Temple has an excellent team. They include a game plan that may have caused hesitation defensively, 8 days between games when we were playing well (and I wonder if we did too much or too little in that time) and early foul trouble for Vernon Goodridge.

We move on and I am convinced that we are better off when we focus on our own team and what we do as opposed to spending time becoming more familiar with our opponents.

We have highly committed kids in our program and we are sure to continue improving over the course of the season.
