“When our backs are against the wall, we seem to play better I think,” UCA junior shortstop Justin Treece. “People play looser instead of being tight.” – UCA junior SS Justin Treece said of the the Bears winning eight-straight elimination games dating back to last week’s Southland Conference Tournament
Song to describe game: Living on a Prayer by Bon Jovi UCA has won eight-staight elimination games going back to last week’s Southland Conference Tournament. It seems they have some divine inspiration.
