After the game we caught up with Coach Nicki and she spoke about future improvements… “I hope we shoot it better. I think when you are a pro team and you shoot 28 percent it’s hard to win games. I thought our defense was really on point. Between game one and game two I thought our attention to detail was better, our defense on Cambage was better, our defense on Skylar…until late. She picked up a bunch of fouls and got to go to the foul line late, but I think our defense was better. I think we made progress from the first time we played them, but we’ve got to execute better. We have to time screen better. It’s hard to get Cambage very far from the rim unless you have a three-point shooting five player. She’s just always lurking, and so we had to make some tough plays around the rim. We had to be creative with screening her. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t.”
