Coach Tim Floyd

"Our crowd was phenomenal and I want them to spread the word. I’d like to have a sellout in here on Saturday, I just think these kids deserve it and we’re playing at that kind of level. We’re in first right now and I’d like to see our people respond and pack this place in. I think we really deserve it based on effort. I’ve never asked people to come out. I think you’ve got to earn these things. But I think these kids are earning it as we move along."
