"I told them I was proud of them," Lazzor added. "The progress we have made with a new coach. New system, new expectations … the progress they've made from the point that they are at now, and I've told them it's not just in games it's in practices the last two weeks. Guys like Tre'von, Chad and Emmanuel, our only senior, have led us in practice and forced us to be accountable for our actions in practice. That is when a team arrives, when the players take responsibilities for themselves and that is what we started doing. That wasn't there in the beginning of the year, but they've bought in to their credit and earned my respect ten-fold over these last few weeks based on their efforts and you can see it on the court. They are giving every single thing they've got."
