HEAD COACH SHELDON KEEFE
On what areas of the game will be worked on in practice:
We need to be better in every single regard. Every time we show or take steps in one area, we aren’t able to sustain it. We lose it the next day or the next period, or the next shift. It’s pretty disappointing and pretty frustrating. We’re just going to continue to work as a group here, but there’s not one area of our game that doesn’t need attention.
