We wanted to keep it a double-digit lead and not let them get it under 10. For the first time in a couple weeks we came out strong and got out to a good start. At this point in the season a win is a win.
I think it helped us out a lot when Knapp got in foul trouble. She's one heck of a ball player.
This is for all of the money. I don't think the loser gets in. We'll have eight losses and that won't get you in.
She reminds me so much of Allen Iverson. Cassandra is one of those players who no matter what teams try, is not going to back down from a challenge.
We were very focused and intense tonight. We had a team meeting after the loss at Eau Claire and talked about some things. I thought we were more focused tonight.
At halftime it was like walking into a morgue. We talked about defense and rebounding. Maybe it's happening because we're playing a lot of kids and we get out of a rhythm on defense.
We did enough to get out of here with a road win, which was huge for us. I was real pleased with our effort and I thought we played really great defense.
We did what we needed to do to get back in the (WIAC) race. It's huge for us. We have a chance to redeem ourselves at home and the big crowd gave us a lot of energy. We've put ourselves in a good spot now.
Stout outplayed us. You have to give them credit. We shot 37 percent (from the field), which was the worst we shot all year and they shot 41 percent. You have to put the ball in the basket and you can't give up 84 points.
That win (at Oshkosh) was huge. It couldn't have helped with our preparation any better. We were able to gain some momentum and confidence. We're welcoming the challenge.
We'll have to try to fill her spot by committee. We need a couple players to give us what Chelsea gave us.
I think it's going to be a classic. It should be a great game. Our motivation is to prolong our season.
I thought we really stepped up to the challenge is this game. We were able to answer their runs. When they went on another run, I thought we really buckled down.
