Kaila was amazing. She really came into the game focused and ready to play and it showed. She was one of the keys.

Our plan is to get the job done this year. To leave no doubt on the floor.

That was huge. At one point we were up by 20 (63-43 with 2:42 to play). You know, this team has done a lot of great things this year. We've had our ups and our downs, but it's just a great feeling to be number one.

I told them, 'We've been in worse situations.' We had to press the issue.

Lauren's a smart kid. She's played with four fouls in the past. She's a senior and you expect your seniors to play smart.

This is a great accomplishment. This is the first time in school history that we've won this. These girls worked so hard for this.

She's just a big, dominating force in the middle. She can shoot the jumper from 17, 18 feet out, she's quick going to the bucket, she's got great post moves, she faces up -- she's going to be a great college player.

The unfortunate thing is the best three teams are on our side, and only one gets to go.

We just needed to stop their runs. We knew it was bound to happen if we could maintain our defensive composure.
