Quotes from head coach Susan Judge

?I think one of the most significant things in this match was ourserve/receive. Right now in matches like these, we come out tentativeand we don't play fundamental volleyball. Our serving, if you don't getit over the net or hit it out of bounds, you don't score points. I don'tknow if we were nervous or what the problem was, but there is really noexcuse. It's another one of the ups and downs, and this was one of thedowns. We had a fantastic crowd and several positive things that shouldhave rubbed off on our play.?

?Jamie Burke was really the only individual that performed to the topof her game. I'm really proud of the way she played, and I'mdisappointed in the rest of the team. We need to have more peopleperforming. We have a tremendous amount of talent, and it?s frustratingnot to see us get the most out of it. I know the kids have the rightintentions, but somehow we?re not preparing ourselves before thesematches, and that's going to continue to be a challenge for us.?
