“We’re stringing these games together, and that’s what it’s about this time of year,” head coach Quentin Hillsman said. “We’re just trying to finish the year strong. One of the things they say the NCAA Committee looks at is how you finish the season. We are trying to make our move to play in the NCAA tournament. We can’t worry about what other teams are doing. All we can do is take care of ourselves, and that’s what we’re doing. We’re playing the best basketball we can play right now.”
