  “A great win and an important win,” said Greenville head coach Marcus Smith. “I’m proud of our defense. The first half our shots weren’t falling, but defensively we kept ourselves in the game. We had the lead at halftime. The second half we did a better job of taking care of the ball. Therefore we were able to extend our lead. I want to thank the community for coming out to support us tonight.”
