Cornelius, who set his career high spoke about how things turned around for Gilboa during the final 20 minutes, “We went into half-time feeling that we could do a a lot more and we knew that the minute we would put it all on the court defensively our offense would come alive. I felt that when they would fine me everything would fall into place and I am happy that this was the case,”

“All week, practice has been intense,” Washington said following the game. “It was so competitive that coach had to calm us down. However, that’s how we want to be. We had to come out with great energy today to set the tone. That’s exactly what we did. So proud of our guys, but now it’s on to the next. We are back to 0-0 on the season. We have to keep getting better.”
