Coach Kevin Williams Sr. shared his thoughts on the game:
“It was a tough game to lose being up 10 points with a minute left is really disappointing. But even in the loss, I was proud of my team. This being our first season in the American Basketball Association and losing to the #10 ranked North Alabama Wardawgs by 5 points and then losing tonight by 2 points in overtime shows that we belong on this stage. We will bounce back from this and get ready for our home opener on November 4th in New Orleans at Dilliard University.”
