Quote of the Day: From Coach John McCormack on what it would have meant to complete the sweep of New Orleans.
"A sweep keeps you in the race, after what happen with Middle [Tennessee]…you win two of three each week, it's going to put you in first or second place and give you a good seed for the conference tournament, that was our goal to win every conference series".
