Not starting her is something that we have been doing all year. We have had a different girl lead us in scoring just about every game.
It was a great effort by our team. Every time we made a run, (Freedom) got back up. Every time we got in there, they pushed us back. We wanted to come in a play well and I think we did that.
We're awfully familiar with one another. It's tough enough beating a team three times. Four is asking for a lot.
Emotionally, this was a big victory for us. We're planning on seeing Academy at least two more times this season and probably three.
Defense has been the key for us throughout the playoffs. We were able to able to keep (MCC) in check, and that allowed me to use some reserves in the second half.
We have players who don't care who is leading us in stats. On any given night, someone different will lead in scoring. It might not always be pretty, but they get the job done.
Our inside really took care of business tonight. I think that was the definite advantage. When we get that inside outside game going, you have to pick your poison.
It may have affected us a bit. But I don't blame the officials for us losing. We just weren't as focused as usual.
