"I am so happy for our girls tonight. The girls fought and competed for 40 minutes. I thought we guarded and rebounded really well. We continue to improve on the offensive end. The girls found a way to win tonight. They made enough plays down the stretch. We showed a lot of improvement from first semester. I am excited to see what this team can accomplish in the 2nd semester," commented Head Coach Ashley Martin.
