Each time we appeared on the verge of striking back, we would have a crucial turnover to hurt us.

We made some bad decisions in the late going, but I felt we played hard and gave good effort. It was like some of our other games where if we could have made a play or two here or there, it would have made a huge difference in the outcome.

Mullins was the conference champion, but with an 11-9 record, we felt we had a shot and went after it. Our effort was there, but we couldn't pull it out.
