Number 22, senior Danya Phillips, mentioned after the game that all she was focused on was playing the game, never paying attention to the score.

Phillips said, “we came back into the second half with more intensity and knew that if we wanted to win, we all had to play the same game.”

In the end, the Spartans had a victorious evening, with a final score of 57-48.

Assistant Coach Danielle Phillips, commented on what the girls need to improve before their next game. “Defense! Defense is what wins the game. Their press is looking phenomenal, but if the girls are wanting to go all the way, then they need to be able to drop back and get the ball.”
