Head Coach Phil Russell said after the game that he would not call it an ugly win that all wins are beautiful in his eyes.  “This team is resilient. I told them early in the week that you can not take any team for granted. We can build off this win and become a much better team” said Russell. The Wildcats will be back in action on Sep. 12 when they travel to Harlan to take on the Green Dragons.
