As and coach knows rankings are hard to get, easy to lose. Head Coach Bart Lundy said balance helps, and staying committed to the process by taking it one game at a time while doing some celebrating along the way.
"Enjoy the successes, we've had some great things happen already. We beat VCU, who four or five years ago was in the Final Four in Division I, we beat them in front of a sold out crowd. We had a dunk from Daniel Camps make the top 10 on Sports Center. And we set a record for wins. So we want to celebrate our accomplishments, but keep it where it should be and continue to work every day and aim for higher things," said Coach Lundy.
