I can hardly grasp that February is almost over and our season is winding down.

We are 13-1 in conference play and have arguably the toughest road swing coming up this weekend.

We face Wichita State on Friday, Missouri State on Sunday and come back home for Bradley and Loyola the following week. That leaves us with just four conference games left and then a whole new season begins.

February has been a month of grinding things out and finding ways to win.

At this point in the season, teams either spiral downward or do the opposite.

Although we have hit a few rough patches along the way, I’m confident our team is ready to finish out conference play stronger than ever.

This week is all about chemistry, staying fresh and staying hungry to get better every single day.

I cannot say enough about our team in those regards.

Are we perfect? Far from it, but we have embraced the concept of “winning the day” and making strides where we need it most.

It has been one heck of a ride this season, but our work is not done.

We openly talk about being number one and holding each other accountable to get there.

It isn’t always easy, but we all understand that it will be worth it in the end.

We aren’t focused on anything other than the next game. The only way we can ever reach number one is by taking this journey one day, one game and one possession at a time.

If we look too far ahead it could take away our focus from how important the present is to us.

This mindset has worked out quite well for us thus far and we will continue to live by it.

Just because we are winning does not mean we can’t get better.

The month of February is where the separation of teams begins.

I promise you our team will continue to stick together, continue to improve and find the momentum we need heading into March.

Stay tuned, my friends and Go Bulldogs!
