Head Coach Boomer Roberts
"We shared the ball well tonight, and did a much better job getting to the paint offensively. Everyone competed, the bench was pumped when other guys made plays, and it was good to get back in the win column before a tough road trip this week."
Next up, Purdue Northwest will travel north to Marquette, Michigan for a conference clash with the Northern Michigan Wildcats Thursday, December 8 at 6:30 pm (CST).
