One thing I'm very proud of my teammates is that we continue to practice hard. We continue to play hard and that's got to be a constant for us. That effort, that attitude and the energy, and if we stick to that things are going to turn around for us. We just got to keep believing, and we got to keep trusting each other and stay together."
