Quotes from head coach Susan Judge

?This is a very unfortunate event. We should have been excited,competitive and aggressive heading into this match. Unfortunately, ourlack of confidence and aggressiveness hindered us. I'm not one tocontinue to make excuses because of our youth, but I hope we canregroup, have some leadership on the court, and players that can takethe initiative tomorrow night. I have to tip my hat to Air Force. Theycame in here with confidence, they played well and deserved to win.That's what competition is all about.?
