That gives us a big advantage.

We haven't worked on the box, but we thought it was something we needed to do to neutralize them.

I thought she's played very well the last three or four games. She has the ability to score underneath because of her athleticism and jumping ability. She does a good job of getting herself the ball and getting key baskets.

My kids came in and had a good day of practice on Thursday. We went over Manchester's personnel and the different sets they run. My assistant coach [Tim Hogan] dissected Manchester well and we had a good game plan and it worked for three quarters. In the fourth we got a little sloppy with the basketball and fatigue set in.

It was a tough game to play, coming off the back end of exams and an emotional victory over New Britain on Martin Luther King Day. We played well enough to take care of business. I'm not happy or upset with our effort.

I thought we did a good job of offensive rebounding [against Manchester]. Sometimes our sore point is defensive rebounding. It's something we'll continue to work on.

She's a very good offensive player. She has a nice three-point shot and she has excellent post moves.

They score in bunches. It was a four-point game and the next thing you know it's a nine-point game.

I want the kids to have a good time with their friends and family. We go softer and once school is back in session, we go back to normal.
