Coach Bruno Quote of the Week

"It is going to be a tough weekend in these three matches. These programs (UTEP, NMSU & Lamar) are at the same level as us and it will be important for all of us to play well. We had two great weeks of practice with last weekend off so I want our level of play to pick up from where we were two weeks ago."
