Jason Parent, who had 9 rebounds and 7 assists, to go along with his 34 points, said, “I think it was a great game overall. We played both sides of the floor and pressured them, and they really couldn’t handle it. We have a really deep roster this year, and a lot of guys who can play basketball. It is really helpful when we can get into games like this so everyone can contribute.”
