Thoughts From Head Coach Kelly Nangle "I thought our girls did well today fighting through some adversity and battling for 60 minutes. We knew this was going to be a good game, and they were ready for us. I think we grew today and fought through some situations that will make us better down the stretch. I'm excited for this team, and I'm excited to watch them improve and become more resilient with each test. We have a short turnaround before we face a very good Richmond team on Saturday. We are excited to get back to work!"
