Coach’s Quote:

Matt Gordon: 

ON THE WIN:  “On the game, it wasn’t pretty, but we found a way to win.  I thought our guys stepped up defensively to start the second half, and I was proud of our guys for sticking together and getting the win against a very tough South Mountain team.”

ON REACHING 200 WINS:  “I’ve had a great run at Phoenix College.  It’s a credit to my coaching staffs and players over the years to accomplish that.  It’s pretty cool to be at one place long enough to win 200 games.”
