Pirate's Men's Basketball had a nice showing Saturday with their 93-89 win on the road at North Arkansas College. The Pirates, now 11-8 on the year, will next host Ottawa University JV on Wednesday at the Ketcham Community Center.
The win was a nice bounce back for the Pirates who had dropped three straight games. "I was really proud of how our guys responded to a very tough week. I hope we learned a lot about ourselves and that if we remain positive and stay the course, good things will happen," commented Esry of his team's overcoming recent woes.
"I thought we did a great job Saturday of playing with a lot of energy and doing whatever it took to win. North Ark is a very good team and very well coached; we knew that we were going to have to try to match their intensity and effort all game and for the most part I think we did. We had some guys step up big for us when it counted the most," concluded Esry.
