She had the skills coming in, but I'm not sure if she had the leadership capabilities, but she has more than shown she does.
We want the next step, which is the states. We know it's going to be a harder tournament. We're going to learn from mistakes in this game. We had an 18-point lead and blew it because we didn't rebound. We know that and we're going to take that to the next game.
We knew we had to keep the ball out of her hands. We went with a full-court press and we forced their guards to turn it over.
We put it on cruise control a little early. It's my fault. We'll learn from the mistakes we made this game.
I think maybe we put it in cruise control a little bit. Partially it may have been my fault because I slowed it down a little early just to make sure we protected the lead in the championship game.
The girls did a great job defensively. We were a little passive in the first half. We were pressing but it was a little laid back. They only had one ball-handler, and once we started pressuring her they couldn't control the tempo.
This has been a special year for the kids. We had to battle through a lot. We had a lot of adversity and they've been a tremendous group. It's just the girls work ethic.
