Western Carolina Head Coach Mark Prosser

Opening statement

“VMI played very well. We tried to mix it up a little bit and make some adjustments and they were able to take advantage of those and make plays. We’ve had very competitive games with them. They came out on top when they have some very good performances, especially by some of their younger players. But I thought we competed. It wasn’t the outcome we had prepared for. But that was the outcome by the end. But I could not be any more proud of the young men sitting here and the young men sitting in that locker room.”

On next year and the progress of the team

“I don’t think there’s any question. I think the future of our program is very bright. I think that there is an understanding on how to win. I think that comes over time. Somebody told me they think were the best seven-win team in the country a couple days ago. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. But it comes over time.”
