Quote of the Day: From Coach John McCormack
"We seem to get in these lowes and no one can seem to get us out of them.  For some reason we haven't been able to get everyone on the same page."

On having to play Miami after the Owls incurred their first conference series lost - "Definitely not the ideal condition."
