THOUGHTS FROM COACH:
- “I couldn’t be prouder of this group. We overcame some early adversity and foul trouble and showed a relentlessness that we’ve been working hard on as a group. We had some huge contributions from our bench and we stayed disciplined all throughout. Every girl filled their role and together we took a step forward as a program.”
- The Lady Pilots return home to the Wiekamp Athletic Center on Wednesday, November 28 to take on Goshen (Ind.) in a men’s and women’s doubleheader, with tip-off set for 6:00 pm.
