“I thought we had a solid tournament,” head coach Mike Dirks said. “We showed that we can play with some of the best teams in the country. I liked the fact that we are making good decision on the course. The difference between good teams and great teams isn’t that much. I think we are a good team now but we are close to becoming a great team.”
