Erika Foy was the only player in double digits with 13 points as well as 11 rebounds. Turnovers plagued the team as they totaled 24 in the game. Coach Tandy commented, “We were confident being down at halftime because we were there last night and responded. We just haven’t gotten over the hump yet. We are gaining the experience needed to play such well coached and experienced teams, but it takes time. It is a process.”
