I didn't care that much about the first two (losses). That's what I told the girls. So what that we lost against them in the league tournament I'd trade all that stuff, the CSAA title and the tournament, for just one district championship. We went down fighting. We just made some critical mistakes at the wrong times.
If you were to ask my players, they'd say no (a rematch), it wasn't on their minds, but I guarantee it was a thought. If you were to ask everybody in the audience - and it's not because they dislike St. Louis - but they wanted someone else to win, so they were probably cheering for us. We just looked like the rest of the teams out there. We tried to make a run at them, and we didn't do it. I'm just ... my brain is just going over everything, and I don't know what it was. There were just balls dropping that shouldn't have.
I was frustrated with the fact that we weren't playing our game at all, and you could tell it ate them up. Some of them, I think they almost wanted it too much, so much that they overdid things. They were just afraid to play. Especially that second game, when we started out, ahead 17-9. Then we let them come back and win That's when I said, come on, this is not my team.
