After the way we played in Madison on Tuesday, this game scared me. But the girls really played well. We executed everything we wanted to. They just finished with 2 more points that we did. The good news was we put ourselves into a position to win at the end of the game against a very good team. This was a step in the right direction.

We wanted Marianna to go one-on-one at the end and it worked perfectly. She penetrated, stopped and then hit the shot. I guess it couldn't have worked better for us.

The difference in our shooting was that we settled down in the second half and didn't rush things. In the first half we were in too big of a hurry and we struggled. Plus, we took too many off-balance shots. It was nice to see the kids improve like that in the final two quarters.

I guess we made it kind of exciting in the fourth quarter. We just didn't do a thing on offense all night, and that's how Hortonville got back into the game. That and missed free throws. We got lucky tonight, that's about all I can say.

I was hoping that this game would give us some momentum for Friday. Now we have to go back to the drawing board and start over. I'm hoping it was just one bad game all on the same night.

We couldn't handle the ball even when they weren't guarding us. That makes it pretty tough to win.

I thought we played well; we just couldn't put the ball in the hoop.

We came out a little slow and lazy tonight in the first half. The kids read the newspapers. They know it's a game they're supposed to win and that's how we played. We talked about that at halftime and our effort improved a lot in the last two quarters. The kids played well in the second half.

Hopefully, we can put this behind us and come out ready to play against Pius. This was a shock to all of us. We struggled like never before.
