The Aggies worked great as a unit and were led by Freshman Tremaine Kynard.
“I feel that I played really good, especially for only getting 10 minutes…I impacted the game in many ways,” Kynard said after the game. “Creating shots for my teammates off screens, moving the ball around, and playing good defense. I took great shots on offense going 5 for 5 from the field, and they were big-time buckets when the team needed them.”
Later in the season, DelVal began to work better as a team.
= “I feel that the team is working better together later in the season because when the season first started we had selfish players” Kynard said. “Everybody didn’t really know each other as much and that was a big problem. Now that the team bonded everybody is on the same page and we have been successful in games.”
The Aggies will continue to push for a playoff spot as their record after the win over Stevens is 10-9.
