We planned on going inside no matter who was in the game, but once Coffin picked up her fourth foul, we took advantage.
We were getting great shots. They just weren't falling. Our kids are just so confident. They kept saying, This is what we need to do. Just keep doing this and we will be fine.
They're a very good team and they have a great inside game, force a lot of turnovers and are the only team with three senior starters this weekend.
She's way more confident in the post than she was at the beginning of the season; she wasn't used to playing with her back to the basket. She's like a sponge, soaking up information, and we've been doing a lot of teaching with her footwork.
We have so many people who can score on this team. Last night (win against Wesleyan) it was Marisa (Berne) who scored big points for us and in the first half today it was Julia.
Coaches always love where their team is at after they win a big game on the road.
We're not where we need to be in our team confidence. This was our second tough game of the year and we have lost them both (losing to top-ranked University of Southern Maine). Our foul shooting was terrible. We didn't do the little things to win, and I'm not sure that this team felt that they could go on a big run.
There is a good side of going to Bates because the eyes are on someone else with Bates hosting the tournament. For us, it's just a matter of being focused and we're excited and ready for this weekend.
Her not being in the game was definitely a big factor because she is such a presence on the inside.
