Niagara Gazette — They got their wish, as Harris made the final drive to the basket, where Brown met him with the big stuff.
Mason and McCall met with reporters after the game and both were asked about undergoing the pains of a rebuilding team one year after playing on a roster that went to the National Invitation Tournament.
“Like Coach Casey said, you’re going to go through changes in your life all the time,” McCall said. “It’s just how you look at them and how you will tackle them. We still can do the same thing this year, it’s just going to be a different road to it.”
“Two tough games this weekend, both by one (point), but as coach said we’re getting better,” said Mason. “I know my teammates and me personally, we’re not scared of anybody. We’re getting more confident. We’re playing together better as a team. We’re getting close to the end. We’ve just got to finish on the right cut.”
Next up for the Purple Eagles is a Valentine’s Day matchup against regional rival Canisius College in the latest round of the Battle of the Bridge. Friday night’s game against the Golden Griffins will tip off at 9 p.m at the Gallagher Center.
