Mick Durham; Head Coach - UAF Men's Basketball>>: "No it was good, we didn't get off to a very good start, fought through it, we were down at half. I thought we played really well the second half, we had to hold them off and we did. Thought we made a couple big shots, I thought Lendway's low post move late really was big. We got a couple big rebounds. It's nice to get on the scoreboard in the G-NAC, with a win."
