Cooney reflected upon the support that they received that night, “The student section was in full force and it was awesome to see so much support for the seniors.” He also went on to say, “Marquette was an important game for us because we wanted the best seed possible in the playoffs.”

The Lancers ended up beating Marquette 79-55 and secured the #2 seed. The team moved on to playoffs for a chance to compete at state, achieving the title of regional champions at their second game. Osman looked back on the season fondly: “It’s been a great season so far as a team with lots of great memories, and hopefully we are able to continue our season and make it to state.”
