Quotes from Jon Messick
“The Wyoming match is going to be tough, they are as good or better as they were last year,” said head coach Jon Messick. “We really have to make sure that we are taking care of the ball on our side of the net as far as minimizing our error, and then I think we really have to adapt to their style of play which is a little different that some of the players we have been playing against. It is going to be a tough match for us, but I think we match up well and we are going to be prepared.
