The Will to Win
I have never seen a team--and a head coach--that wanted to win a game more.
From start to finish, NSU was focused, determined, and "all-in". From the first timeout, Head Coach Jennifer Graf's face was red as can be. She wasn't mad--she was intense. And from my vantage point close behind the Lady Demons' bench, every player was tuned in--hanging on every word she had to say.
The result? A win against a good team, at a place where that good team doesn't lose very often. Wednesday's effort--and result--emphasizes what has been obvious most of the year. NSU has the talent to be a very good team. Maybe--hopefully--it has just taken a little longer than everyone would like for that talent to come together.
Saturday, the second half of the Southland Conference season begins. NSU will take a 4-4 league record--and a two-game winning streak-- into a 2pm home game against winless Texas A&M Corpus Christi. It will be one of just two Prather Coliseum appearances for the Lady Demons in February. I hope to see you at the game, but if not, I hope you will listen on 100.7 KZBL and the Demon Sports Network, or nsudemons.com.
See you on the radio!
