Ariona Johnson, center, said, “Started off preety strong. After the second half, when things got down, we still stayed together. We could have definitely rebounded better, and defensively know where the shooters are.”
Mathis said, “We were kind of frustrated the entire game, but a win is a win. It was ugly; we need to make our shots.”
Christian Pollicelli said “ The girls were playing great defense the first half, but needed to shoot better in the second half.”
Ari Biggus said “The team played great fundamentals, and try from buzzer to buzzer, needs to work on three ball.”
Garrett Allen said “ The girls work hard every game, and that’s why they won tonight, but shooting was off tonight and needs to be worked on.”
