POST-GAME QUOTES
Head Coach Natasha Adair
“I can’t say enough about the grit and versatility of our team. This is not a one-dimensional squad and whatever gutsy plays need to be made our players make them. Whatever I ask of this group, they step up. William & Mary had a little momentum run, but we challenged them and they didn’t fret. This was a very competitive William & Mary team that is tough to beat on their home court. They weren’t quitting and they left it all on the floor.”
 
Sophomore Abby Gonzales
“William & Mary really put up a good fight and they’re a tough team, especially on their home court. When shots weren’t falling, we knew we had to stay tough on the defensive end and eventually the points would come.”
