QUOTING COACH ANDERSON — “Last weekend we didn’t do as well as we would have liked. I don’t think we played to our capabilities, however we’re a lot better than we were at this time a year ago. Knowing that we had a shot to win going into the final round will give us a lot of motivation this weekend. I’m looking for us to step up and be more confident. I think we should be right up there again this weekend.”
