Question from Q
Coach,
This is Q, I wanted to tell you good luck tonight. Hope we get this victory (Rhode Island).

Response from Head Coach Rex Walters
Thanks Q! We miss seeing you in the office and on the court. Hope you and the family are doing well. We could have used that stroke last night.

Question from Todd
Hi Coach,
It was good to watch the game against URI last night. The team is heading in the right direction even though the outcome wasn't a W. My question is I didn't see Jamal Owens on the court last night. What is the reason for his absence in a game where it looked like you emptied the bench at the end of the game?

Thanks and good luck this year.
Todd

Response from Head Coach Rex Walters
Todd,
Thank you for your kind words. I am not happy with our play in the 2nd half, but we have two first year players starting which will make us better later in the year.

Jamal is back in Florida nursing an injury and we hope to have him back in full contact practice real soon. This will definitely hurt his development, but we are happy with his improvements physically. I emptied the bench last night because I was not happy with the defensive effort of the players on the floor (especially in our transition defense) and wanted to give some of our other players an opportunity. It would have been nice to have Jamal there but unfortunately he needs some time physically to get back on the court for practice. Thanks for the support and questions!

Go Owls,
Rex Walters
