With a 6-2 overall record halfway through the season, head coach Rob Keefe said he and his staff aren't letting off the gas pedal.

"Our organization, our coaching staff, the players - we're done everything that's been asked of us for the first half and now it's time to really kick it up," said Keefe. "We have a lot of scouts coming to the Orlando game. These guys are ready."

Keefe said he made some moves in the roster over the past several days that has created a new sense of urgency.

"I think we made some moves that have kind of waken them up a little bit. They know they have to be on their toes, and they have to be always ready to be consistent."

Saturday's game at Orlando will be shown live on SWX-TV at 4:30 p.m. (PT), with pre-game coverage beginning at 4:15.
