In the first quarter we came out just on fire. Then Sheena got in foul trouble and I sat her down. Then, our defense fell asleep. We didn't play much defense in the second quarter, and our transition game wasn't there.
I kind of ripped into them at halftime. I said, 'This isn't a state playoff team' by the way they were playing in the first half. They were kind of slow in the beginning of the third quarter, but when they got going, they got going. We did what we had to do to win in the second half.
I wanted to take Henderson out of the game because their offense really runs through her. They had other weapons, though, and those other girls stepped up.
I felt good about coming in tonight. After the first half, I said 'Boy, we're staying with them.' In the second half they turned up the heat. They shot the ball well tonight. We didn't get out and get hands on some looks. When the momentum swung, it swung. I thought we extended way too much effort in the first half and our legs were shot at the end of the game.
If they stayed man-to-man with us, I thought we could score with them. We don't shoot the ball very well from the outside and you could see that.
We extended everything we had in the first half to stay with them. I thought they'd cool off in the second half. They didn't cool off.
Cami played a whale of a first quarter. She got us started.
