Coach had said that he was proud of the girls for this great season so far and that in order to beat their cross-town rivals, the Marquette Redettes, the girls would have to improve their post-interior defense and ball pressure. He said that Megan Syrjala had a hot-hand and Hannah Voskuhl played really well defensively through out this game. He also said that Hannah and Aili Shiroda were just rebounding magnets and that really helped with the final outcome of the game.
