Remarks from Team Leader Kristy Curry
“Wins on the road are incredibly difficult. We really came up with a clutch performance to seal the deal, in my opinion. By the time there were only six minutes left, we had a 23-point lead.
I’d want to see us put together a stronger final stretch, but I’m happy with how we were able to make up ground by focusing on the details. Significant pedagogical value. We may simply push along and resume our duties the next day.”
