Quotes from head coach Susan Judge

?From an observer point of view, it was obvious the intensity level wasnot the same as it was last night, and that affects everything. Ourheads were not in the match to begin with, and it's the same cycle thatwe continue to go through, which is very disappointing. I think we hadeverything going for us going into this match. I don't know what thedistraction was and why we weren't as prepared. We gave a lot in lastnight's match, and maybe we didn't have enough tonight, I really can'tsay. It's just disappointing to come and lose this match at home.?

?I think two areas that hurt us, one was our serve/receive, which ourpassing was not very good and therefor the offense suffers. Two, we didnot serve very tough, and were not challenging their passers. Anytimeyou give the opposing teams soft serves, they are going to pass and runtheir offense. It just wasn't there tonight.?
