Coach Jeff Brabant felt his team could have played a better game, "Our efforts weren't very good today and that is my fault. We took a bit of today off and great teams don't do that. With baseball, the turnarounds are tough and good, but we get another opportunity to be better in the morning. Hopefully we learn from tonight."

MCC will take on Northwestern tomorrow at 11:30am and Wheaton at 1:30pm in Tucson, AZ.
