Coach Chally said, "Rebounding needs to
improve on both the offense and defensive ends, but it is nice to have
everyone score to balance our offense. These are a good group
of girls to work with. They work hard,
listen well and are out there to have fun and continue improving
their game, making this an exciting game to watch."

but picked it up the second quarter. We held them scoreless
until the third quarter. We only shot 33 percent from the field
but they played great defense. Our shot selection is getting
better and we are getting better looks at the basket. Alyssa
Wirtz has stepped up at the point and is starting to move the ball down
court more aggressively. That is fun to see."
