Head Coach Sanchez

What did you say at the end of the game?
"I said 'Look you guys, we were down nine with 5:17 left on the clock and you guys could have packed it in. We could have gone through the motions and maybe lost by 10 or 13'. They came back and ran some sets. They executed them, we got some rebounds. They battled back and they did a nice job. We had the opportunity to tie it up and we did. It was an excellent rebound by Chinyere. She turned around, and made a nice shot. Lauren got on the point-guard on the inbound and it's just one of those shots. You see it in NCAA tournaments, and you see it in March Madness. We might be a deflection away of overtime and maybe to win. The kid hit a great shot and I told them 'Guys losing sucks'. But I couldn't be prouder of them because of what they've done and how they battled. As long as I continue to get the effort, I'll be proud of this team."
