They say close only counts with horseshoes and hand grenades.
So, despite many of Quinnipiac’s losses being close last season, they didn’t count for much.
Fall provided the Bobcats with the perfect time to focus on improving so that they can finish out those chances where they were almost there, and turn those losses into wins.
“Last year we would just kind of let one play snowball, and then you'd see those games slip away,” said head coach Mason Poli. “So this year it was our focus to finish everything all the way through. It’s the focus and attention to detail piece that we've been concentrating on this year.”
