We knew both posts would play a big role, especially the way (Wilson) leads her team. But everybody on the floor for us chipped in a lot, and ended up making a lot of shots.

It really hurt us defensively trying to match up size-wise.

We did a much better job of blocking them underneath and only giving them one shot.

Those possessions really were turning points and you never forget that. We feel we didn't play our best game two years ago, and we want to make sure that doesn't happen again.

I felt our kids played with a lot more energy than they had in a while. The press worked better than it has all year and disrupted their offense.

Natalie exerts a lot of energy for us. She is our Energizer Bunny. Defensively, she played a great game and we're proud of that effort, but I didn't think she played her best game by any means.

We're going to focus on (the regional championship) starting right now.

I felt like our defense did it again for us. We played amazing defense down the stretch.
