It’s been really good from my perspective as the head coach.” Kelly said to the media, “Getting to 10 wins does that, it’s kind of that mark that if you get to double digits you can walk away and everybody feels good about it. I feel like we’ve done really good things internally but definitely a win here is really important to everybody.”
