"As a team last year, we weren't able to finish games that we could have won," Kwiatkowski said. "And so I know these guys took that to heart and that was a big issue in the offseason. ... These guys could feel and understand what it took to seal the deal."
"Our defense has been a little bit of what they did before, a little bit of what I brought, a little bit of what Justin brought and it was definitely a group effort and he was just the guy that was in charge of it all," Kwiatkowski said. "The responsibility and roles change, but what we've been doing is working and there is no reason to fix it."
