The Hurricanes (2-3, 0-2) faced the Virginia Tech Hokies (3-2, 1-2) on Saturday in what turned out to be an exciting display of offense after a very poor first half showing.
“Obviously, it was our fourth game of the season, and tonight was our second win and probably our fourth-best performance of the four we’ve had so far,” head coach Manny Diaz said. “With all that being said, the only thing that we could accomplish today was beating Central Michigan, which, after the course of 60 minutes, when everything was added up, that’s what we got done.”
“There are a lot of happy faces in that locker room and a lot of guys that have worked very, very hard for this feeling and for this day,” Diaz said. “The game went about as we thought it would.”
What this team needs is a big performance on Saturday to build confidence in front of their own fans.
