The difference in time schedule seemed to improve the Rocks play; as the team won three and lost merely one of the day games. When asked about the day game controversy, head coach Hugh Johnson remarked that “it really made no difference to the team except the players liked the visability difference much more.” Todd Miller splits the uprights.
