Our defense has been pretty good this year. Cori, Nat (Gilbert) and Ataya (Horn) have been huge on the boards. Even our freshmen have come in and played well when needed. We want to see what we are made of this week, especially against two teams that we have already lost to. Winning makes is fun to come to the gym every day. Cori and I want to go out winners. This team is on its way.”
