"Our post players got into some foul trouble early so we had to go with 4 guards out on the court, and they all did a fantastic job with the presses and fast break attack." commented Coach Jodi Holleman. "In the second half we were a bit tentative offensively and caught on our heels defensively while the Blackjacks snuck back into the game by hitting some big treys down the stretch. I saw that deer in the headlight look on some of the girls when the score got close, but the seniors provided some good leadership in the final minutes to seal the win.
