It's a great accomplishment to be 20-3 and to be at state. I don't think any of the team's accomplishments were accomplishments that were expected. It's quite a feat for these young ladies.
We had opportunities to score - and we didn't. We couldn't put the ball in the basket.
We try to create a little bit of chaos.
I think we made just enough (free throws) to keep our cushion.
We were just trying to survive one possession at a time, one game at a time. I thought a .500 record would be pretty good.
How did the kids do it? They play with so much heart. Each game they kind of treated it like a season. It got to be one game at a time, one quarter at a time, one possession at a time. They bought into that, and then it started rolling.
Unfortunately, their speed was a little too much for us. We broke down defensively too many times.
It's our way of survival. We have to play tough defense to play with the personnel we have. ... I've been doing this 17 years, and every year we had post players. To not have any, we had to change everything. It was a good time for me professionally and for the kids to do that.
She was kind of the glue.
