"Now they're getting an opportunity and they're playing really, really hard and they're gonna continue to get rewarded, if they play that way. They're playing hard and the playing unselfish and they're playing the right way. So it happens. It's I'm glad that we're seeing this kind of production," Head Coach Micah Shrewsberry said.
