“I was very pleased with the offensive output as again we had 10 different players score and at the end of three quarters had 52 points going into the final frame,” Bob Curtis said.
“We are starting to really be more efficient on offense and stingy on defense as we allowed 14 points Tuesday night and 18 Thursday night…With our depth being able to play 12, comfortably my assistants and I have preached to the girls maximum effort on each possession as we are not going to have to leave players out on the court much more than four minutes or so without a break so don’t conserve, play hard, rest, then play harder.”
