Coach Kevin Williams Sr. shared his thoughts on the game:
“We knew coming into this game it was going to be a battle. I think for us having 9 players dressed out, 2 starters, we had to make some adjustments early, but I think our team responded well. James Harrison carried us tonight, hitting big shot after big shot. Sam Shivers and Gabe Drayton played big to help us win our first game in the American Basketball Association. Now we have to enjoy this one and get ready to host the #12 ranked Alamo City Allstars on November 11th.”
