Coach brooke stoehr
“I thought there wasn’t a lot of flow in the game with all the turnovers and fouls, it was very choppy. That being said, I thought we defended and rebounded very well in the first half, but we didn’t do a good job guarding the ball. We didn’t defend as well in the second half, but we did a great job at the free throw line to close out the game.

I feel like we take a breath and relax. You have to give Alcorn credit for continuing to play and fight the entire game. Winning is hard, it doesn’t matter who you play or where you play, so it’s good to come away with victory. We’re excited about that and proud of our team for pulling it off, but we’re going to have to go back, focus and clean up a few things to get ready for Vanderbilt next Thursday.”
