What They're Saying

“The number one key for success in the G-League for an individual is their adaptability to roster movement and changes. We preach that well before the basketball part of it, and I think guys have bought into it.” -Cruise Head Coach DJ Bakker

“We had some spacing things that we set up that kind of allowed us to get open shots. There were multiple possessions where we got four or five passes to get the ball moving quick.” -Cruise Head Coach DJ Bakker

“I think this team we have here is building up some good momentum. We got some real good dudes in the locker room. We're starting to build some good connections and I think that's really what's contributing to our winning.” -Cruise Forward Jared Rhoden
