I'm sure after the Shore Conference (Tournament), everyone thought we were a joke. We take things for granted a lot of times. I think we do better as underdogs.

We work off our defense and it adds intensity to our game. Once our defense clicks, we come together as a team and it takes us over the edge.

We knew to beat Holmdel on their own court would be twice as hard as a regular game. It restored a lot of confidence into this team walking out of here with a win.

We came out here as the underdogs and we wanted to prove to ourselves that we could play with Shabazz. Our coach prepared us well for this game and we weren't intimidated by them.

It took us a long time to realize that everyone was going to get theirs. We had to trust each other. Once we got that chemistry, we started playing our best basketball of the season.
