After the Game Coaches Corner:

Springbrook’s Tonya Banks said after the game, the defense made this happen, and after being asked what was said at 1/2 time, Tonya responded, that it came from the players, one of the 1/2 time locker room comments came from Capree Garner  “we did not come out here for nothing, we got to get this”

Seneca Valleys Todd Bumgardner said when asked what happened. “We played pretty well, but we got killed on the board” “Lots of their interior points in the 2nd half were inside” “we don’t have much height, but we got to keep working on boxen out and rebounding. It just hurt us tonight.
