Defensive players have been working on fundamentals this week while taking solace in the fact that all three of their losses have been in close games.
"We've had opportunities to win all those games," Israel Idonije said. "They've been really close, and games that we should have won, and unfortunately we just didn't do enough. We hold on to that and knowing that we're going to be rested up in this third part of the season into the fourth [part], this is where playoff teams, championship teams, turn it up. We want to be in that mix, so we're ready to go to that next level and get better. We've done some good things, but we're looking to get better."
