Their transition game was where they really made us look bad. When we defended them in a half-court set we did a decent job. They were just too athletic and deep.

I'm very proud of the effort the girls put forth tonight. It's been a tough season, but they never give up.

I told the girls that we have to come ready to practice tomorrow. We lost a close one to Galva on Friday and we have a good shot at beating them.
