Coach Amy Freeman Winslow
"Weber State is always a difficult game; they (the Wildcats) play us extremely hard. We need to execute well and play organized. We had the weekend off, so hopefully the team will be fresh. It will be great to play SMU before the tournament. I am interested to see what they are like and get a feel for them. Playing a top 20 team is great for our record and the program. We are hoping to play well against them and prove that we can contend with a ranked team."
