“We used this game to keep ourselves in a rhythm. We’ve been playing good right now and didn’t want to lose our rhythm. We thank them alot for coming down here to play us. It was fun to get back out there because you don’t know when you’re going to be able to play again because of Covid. We don’t really look at our personal stats. That’s what’s so great about this team. We’re just focused on winning. No matter who gets the most points, most rebounds, most assists. We really don’t look at that. But you know it’s just great to be on a winning team,” said Ridder.
