THOUGHTS FROM COACH BROWN: "I think the Hermitage is always set up very well for our guys. We've had a lot of success there in the past. I think it's a good way for the guys to close out the regular season as well, in terms of getting ready for conference. There will be a couple of conference teams there. Assuming the weather is good, it's a great chance for them to shoot some low scores and continue to build their confidence as we go to OVC."
