While the Breakers have been solid this season, they haven’t displayed the same amount of toughness as they have in prior seasons. The Breakers have only lost one game in the entire season, and they have put on a terrific display against the Hawks in the WIN Entertainment Center. Following back-to-back defeats of the hawks, coach Brian Goorjian is concerned. With this game being played in their backyard, the Breakers will have a significant advantage.
