I think a few of the players were looking ahead to Friday night against Stetson. You don't want to see that, but we weren't very good tonight. We weren't very clinical. We had a lot of shots, but the decision making wasn't great. We did well to get back in the game because we did generate a lot. It was a good header by Jackie to equalize it. We dominated, but we just needed to be a little more clinical.Kennesaw State Head Coach Rob King Notes
