“You just have to bring it every night on the defensive end,” Jangula said, “which we have throughout. If you bring the defensive intensity, the offense will come.”
“Defense leads to good offense,” senior Ty Synder said. “If we get our defense rolling right away, it’ll lead to good offense. We’ll just be hard to stop from there.”
