POST-GAME QUOTES
Head Coach Natasha Adair
“We started flat and I didn’t like our energy throughout the game. We made some runs, but we missed a lot of bunnies around the rim. And down the stretch, free throws were really important. In the end it was our defense; we didn’t get the stops we needed at times. Every possession matters and every possession counts. No game is going to be easy for us, but we need to find a way to finish. It’s one of those things you have to continue to grow and mature through these experiences.”
