When you step into an arena like the Civic Center, with so much history that they've made in there, yes you do come in as the underdog because they've done what they've had to do over the years to prove themselves as possibly the greatest program in the country. We're trying to establish ourselves as a powerhouse school as well. It's going to be a tough challenge to see where we are as a team.

Regardless, we knew she'd want us to come back to Europe and go for the gold. While it was shocking when it happened, at the same time we knew what we had to do.
