We were confident. We watched the tape from the (last PV) game. We knew our little mistakes. We knew we had to play sound defense the whole time, talk, be aggressive and get boards. If we did that, we'd win.
We never had a problem playing with each other. We were both freshmen, young players coming in. We had to adjust to the older girls who knew what they were doing. We looked for each other on the court. We played well together.
We know it. We want the season to go on as long as it can because this is it. It's kind of sad. Four years went so quickly.
Every game we stayed pretty close. We really wanted it this year. We came out and played as hard as we could. We gave them a run.
I felt the same way. We both had the same impression of each other when we were playing against each other. That changed when we started playing together.
We all played good defense. We all played aggressive. Everybody was hitting the boards, getting a lot of rebounds. We were jelling tonight. We played good team defense. We helped each other and stepped out on their shooters.
We shoot fouls at practice. It's a mental thing. We know we can hit them. We've been talking about that in big-game situations, you have to hit them. That's what wins games. Tonight we needed to do it. We concentrated and got the win.
We need to go in with confidence. We can't play down (to their level). If we play down, they'll hang in. We just have to play hard, aggressive defense the whole game and we'll be OK.
