The team performance from the Rustlers was the best of the season, with each player recording a made basket, assist, and steal. "To say I am proud of the performance tonight would be an understatement. Not only do the stats indicate how well we played, the amount of high fives, charges, and enthusiasm for each other was at an all-time high for the season. The 7 players who saw the floor tonight played for each other and the final score reflected that." Quoted Coach Schmit after the game.
