COACH KYLE LINDBERGH SAID
“I was proud of the way our women kept their composure this evening. We could have gotten a good shot every time down the floor but we worked through our offense and worked through some things and we were able to get a great shot most possessions. It was a good game for us going into the home stretch of the season this should give us a little bit of confidence going into Saturday with Hastings.”
