QUOTING COACH ANDERSON — “We are hoping to get back in to a competitive mode to get us ready. We need to start gearing up for a stretch run to prepare us for the rest of the season and the Big Ten Tournament. Last time out we were rusty, but we are going to work hard and should be able to rebound next time out.”
