Quotes from head coach Susan Judge

?It was good to see Melody have these kind of numbers. I was also gladto see Jamie Burke and Michele Keller come in and do some things at thenet offensively. But there are too many gaps right now, and I think ourplayers were overwhelmed. Brigham Young came out played very tough andaggressive, and they were a lot more clean than they were when we playedthem at home. I don?t think we necessarily went into this match with avery aggressive attitude, and we suffered because of that. I think wehave talent and can get more out of it. We do have one more shot here atthe end of the regular season against Utah to clean it up before thetournament, and I?m hoping to see that. Our passing has to get better,and we need to get some consistency if our offense is going to prosper.?
