"I'm especially pleased with how we're playing as a team. We've played great team basketball, and I'm excited about where we're headed and about our matchup Saturday against Santa Fe College.  

"They're always well-coached, so I expect them to be disciplined and solid on the defensive end. We have our work cut out for us, but I'm happy we're at home. Now we have to bring the same energy on defense as we've had on offense."
