POST-GAME QUOTES
Head Coach Rolf van de Kerkhof
“This is another experience that should allow our team to learn and become better moving forward. We had some great moments today, but have to control the game tempo, which will allow us to be better at what we need to do consistently. Credit goes to Princeton as the played more as a team throughout the game and remained disciplined in doing the simple."
