FROM COACH HILTZ
About today: It was nice to win the season series against HBU. They beat us at our place and it left a bad taste in our mouths a few weeks ago so the win today had some added intensity to it.
Looking forward: Tomorrow we have UCA, who ended our home winning streak. Anytime a team comes in and beats you at your house you want to go beat them on their home courts. In this case, it was our first-ever loss on our home courts so we will be looking to avenge that loss on their Senior Day. We are playing really well right now and I'd love for our seniors to leave ULM with a win. A win they can hold onto forever.
-The Warhawks close out the regular season with a final matchup against host Central Arkansas on Saturday.
