Cardinals Coach John Howell was pleased with his group despite the loss. “We needed this. We needed to be close in a game most of the game. With Armando going down it made our bench a little smaller but we had guys come in and continued to compete. It ultimately comes down to turnovers and rebounding and not allowing those second chance points but we had a great effort from both groups and I am proud of my guys tonight.”
