POST-MATCH QUOTES
Head Coach Laura Travis
“We were competitors on court today. In terms of results, the bottom line is that Buffalo executed better for longer stretches of time today. We got ourselves the chances we wanted, so tomorrow will strive to do that again and execute more often. Doubles was exciting all around and the way we rebounded following singles is a testament to how competitive this group is.
