Ya gotta make plays. There are no moral victories for playing the nation's # 2 team in an even game.
The Quakers were seemingly a play or two away from taking control numerous times throughout the game and a missed shot or turnover negated great effort. It was a exciting game for the unbiased fan and one that will pay dividends to both teams for playing great competition. No doubt playing this top end talent will help the Quakers as they head down the home stretch and into the playoffs.
