Walter Hodge: "We are growing as a team with each game"

— "Today I tried to play my game, but our opponents were really well prepared and they defended really well so it wasn't until the second half that I was able to have any chances. The game wasn't unexpectedly tough for me against Kalev. I thought and think them to be a pretty dangerous opponent and they showed that on the court today."

"It's worth mentioning that the atmosphere in the arena and on the court was just incredible. The fans today supported us throughout the whole match and it was amazing out there today. A huge thank you to them for that."

"We did start out pretty poorly today, but it's more important how you finish the match. With each game we are getting better and adding to our growing skill set. We're getting the necessary experience and are growing as a team."
