I believe this is the best ballgame that Mike Simmons has played. I was glad to see him run the court and get a couple baskets. He is gaining confidence and when you gain confidence, other players gain confidence in him.
We didn't really take advantage on the boards like we should have but, hey, it's a nice victory. We have to work for everything we get and it's nice that at least we're not in the cellar of the league now.
We started well and our guys came ready to play. We came out of the gates but you have to give East St. Louis credit they didn't quit and sometimes when you're a long way from home you don't bounce back.
