“I was happy with how the girls played. I know we were missing girls with injury but the girls fought till the end and never quit. I was really proud of Dayzha tonight though. She really stepped up tonight. Shes doing alot of the little things we have been asking such as just boxing out and playing defense. just those things alone transitioned into some good looks and easy buckets for her. I’m also proud of the Free throws tonight. Jordyn went 5 for 6 and Dayzha went 100% going 5-5. We have struggled in this area the last few games so it was good to see us fixing that problem. ” Coach Joey Holland Said.
