Wild weekend for the Warhawks a team that was previously winless on the road, managed to sweep the two game Georgia trip.
The cherry on top was the overtime thriller over the Panthers that snapped their 10-game winning streak.
“We just know that any team is capable of beating every other team in this league, ” says Warhawks guard/forward Sam McDaniel. “Regardless of records and results, every week is going to be a fight…we’re going to have to come out with a win no matter who it is. So, we go into every weekend with that mindset, and came out with the right result.”
Saturday’s date in Atlanta saw Keith Richard’s crew shoot 75 percent in the first half, 56 for the evening.
The ‘Hawks improve to 7-0 this season, when eclipsing 50.
“…Some games I tell them not to make them, and some games I tell them to make them, ” jokingly says ULM head coach Keith Richard. “No, I don’t know. We’re a good shooting team. When we’re on, we’re pretty hard to guard. And, because we have matchup problems for the other teams.”
If winning away from Fant-Ewing wasn’t hard enough, ULM will try to do something more difficult and somehow get past the same UT-Arlington squad who held them to a season low 31 percent from the field on the road.
“How can we free ourselves from open three point shots?, ” says Richard. “They got length. They got size. Can we cause some matchup problems to maybe create some help and get some open three pointers. I think we need to do some of those things differently…”
Warhawks face UT-Arlington on Thursday, following the women’s game.
