Executed the defensive game plan pretty well, but just struggled to hit the open shots.  At times we had good movement on offense and others we did a lot of standing.  Kaitlin Coughlin and Taylor Zaracki did a great job on Hauschild keeping her to 4 points, but we gave up too many offensive rebounds in the second half which gave them second chances.  The telling tale were free throws.  Getting an opportunity to go to the line 27 times and making 16 of them when both teams played a physical game was concerning to us.  We needed to be more aggressive in attacking the gaps and we did that at times, but needed to be more consistent with it.  Proud of our effort and focus and now our attention turns to district play.  Everyone at this point is 0-0 and it's loose or go home.  I believe in our girls and i believe we will give ourselves a chance to make great things happen.
I want to thank the seniors for their leadership and efforts over the past four years.  THey have been a great bunch of kids to work with and they need to know the ride is not yet over.
