RV Coach Dean Norris commented, "This loss closed out the careers for four very special seniors - Austin Moeller, a starter who worked very hard in practice and in the off season to make himself a starter this year and always put the team first ; Brody Reidemann, a two-year starter and two- time All Conference Honorable Mention selection who leaves with a school record for most 3-point goals in a game and an unquestioned toughnesss as a leader the last two years; Blaine Cullen, a two-year starter who was a leading rebounder and defender and was really respected by his peers for his conduct on and off the court; and Zak Gander, a three-year starter and two time All Conference selection, who led the team in scoring and rebounding the last two years and for his career averaged almost a double-double in these categories. Zak also was a tireless worker who spent a lot of time not only on his game, but also helping younger players develop. "This group was very close, and will be remembered for their hard work and great 'team first' attitude. Also of note - a quick 'thank you' to Austin Hansen, who served as a volunteer coach this year, running the offense and demonstrating to the team the hard work it takes to make improvements in their games the same way he did when he was a great player for us."
