Coach Amy Freeman Winslow
"We played well last weekend. Northern Arizona was a good game for our freshman. The team fed Staci Burt some great balls and she did her job and put them away. UTEP was tough, very scrappy and physical. Our team had to play hard and really moved the ball around. Defensively we were very organized and we didn't give UTEP the opportunity to score. It was a step in the right direction."
