“I thought we started really well, but I thought we relaxed a little bit after getting out to a big lead early,” Burkhamer said following the game. “I don’t know if we just assumed we were going to win. We found a way to earn the win tonight, but [that’s] not the way we need to play.”

Burkhamer called the game a “teachable win” and said he would much rather teach from a win than a loss.

“At the end of the day, it’s still a ‘W’ in the win column,” Burkhamer said.

With the win, the Argos are one victory away from 20 straight at home, a streak dating back to Dec. 31, 2016.

“We’ve established a pretty good home court advantage here. We’d love to get more folks at the games, but we had a terrific crowd tonight,” Burkhamer said. “It’s a heck of a thing for our program to have 19 straight home wins, to have a chance to reach another milestone that we’ve accomplished here.”

Though the win was a tough one, Burkhamer is as proud as ever of his team and their chemistry together.

“It’s a good feeling to know we’ve got good kids that are playing hard and playing together and that care about each other,” he said. “We’ve got to continue to work, we’re not where we want to be yet, but we’re off to a great start. We’re playing every night to get to the next level, and we want to continue to play well to give us an opportunity to do something we’ve never done here.”

The Argos will host Auburn-Montgomery on Sunday at 4 p.m. in another GSC matchup in the UWF Field House.
