Head Coach Ray Ortiz stated; I have to say that our bench picked up where our regulars lacked.  Everyone is beginning to know their role on the team and it is becoming a pleasure to watch.  Although we still need to get better at knowing our defensive assignments’.  ‘We are starting to trust one another and have gained more and more chemistry each game.  It’s the main reason for the great basketball that we have been playing lately; stated Devon Young.
