Post-game, Head Coach Tina Martin said,

“In the second half, we played much better defense. I really got on them at halftime and they did a much better job defensively to end the game… Tonight’s win was a team effort; it’s big to have four people in double figures. We need to continue to have that offensive contribution.”
