Hilliary Scott, LYNCHBURG HORNETS HEAD COACH, said "We really have been trying to focus on the defensive end this year and rebounding. And those numbers have certainly improved from last year, and now we just need some of our offensive numbers to catch up where we've been the last couple of years."
Austin Wrighten, HORNETS SENIOR WING, said "Last year, we didn't play defense, I'm just gonna be completely honest. We were giving up 80 points a game and we just had to outscore our opponent. This year, we're very, very focused on the defensive end and we take pride in defense this year."
