Coach Bochette: “We’re obviously very disappointed with the result and the performance tonight. Yale is an excellent, well-coached, and top team. Hats off to them for exposing our lack of efficiency tonight. While there were definitely some positive performances and we had some minor injury concerns affecting our lineup, we have to hold our hands up and accept that we simply weren’t good enough tonight. The big picture for us has not changed at all, however. We’ve been in great form for the past month, and we’re excited to enter an important segment of our America East season.”
