This is a very big win for us, over a very good Ripon team. I think our girls really grew up tonight. I told them to not hang their heads, no matter what Ripon does. Our girls never gave up and they learned they can play in big games.

Columbus is known for their aggressiveness on their press. Our girls weren't expecting it to be that aggressive. It caused us some problems early on.

Lourdes gave us a tough game at home. They held us to 35 points the first time and we talked about how aggressive Lourdes is defensively. The kids were ready.

I was very happy with the way we came out against a team we were favored to beat. I liked the way we were focused.

She didn't touch the ball much in the first half and you could tell they were struggling to get into any kind of rhythm.

I'm happy with how the girls are starting the games.

I thought early on we missed a few shots that we'd been making normally. We lost a little composure early on and became hesitant.

After a tough loss Tuesday I was happy with our defensive intensity.

She had her best outing of the year for us. She really established herself inside. She had eight points in the second quarter.
