Quotes from head coach Susan Judge

?Winning is a pleasant thing. I can say that I'm proud of the team forrecovering from a very difficult night on Friday. It was a tough loss to swallow,and we didn't do our best. But we came back, shook it off and I thinkeveryone spent some time evaluating what they needed to do in preparingfor the match. They knew going into this match they felt better aboutthemselves. Tonight we made mistakes, but we were steady, because weknew that we were better and didn't overreact. They were a good servingand defensive team, but just like Air Force, they physically don?t havethe size or the talent that we do. We made certain that we utilized allof our skills, and didn't allow the psychological and emotional part tobring us down.?
