"We have a lot of competition going on and I'd like to see that separate itself a little bit," said head coach Tony Graystone. "We're just trying to generate these game-environment moments the best we can so that when we get it all together and do it for real we can be ready."

There they will battle Colorado at 8:30 p.m. on Friday, followed by Long Beach State at 1:30 on Saturday. They finish by playing Portland State at 9:30 p.m. Saturday night.
