Anytime you are playing a rival, you need to be prepared for a tough game,” said Titan head coach Chris Fechner. “Preparing for back-to-back opponents causes challenges, but I thought the guys played to the game plan and executed on both ends of the floor very well. We had a great crowd for the game and their energy certainly helped us.”
