Coach Rike:

Tonight's game was a different quarter a different story for the Panthers. The first quarter may have been our worst one this season. The second quarter we got our composure back and did a good job getting back in the game. The third quarter we looked liked the team that went 3-0 last week as we took the lead heading into the 4th quarter. Then in the 4th quarter we got in our heads mentally and let the size of our opponent play the biggest factor in the game. 

We know going into every contest that we are the smaller team on the floor. When we are at our best we don't let it make that much of an impact, but when we are at our worst, not only do we see the size contrast on the rebounding end, but our girls start to struggle making simple shots because they are always in a hurry before size closes in on them. Rushed shots cost us big time tonight as we went 13 for 41 with shots in the paint. Stivers 6'0" post player - Emily Fletcher just proved to be too much for us tonight as she put up 12 points and kept us from scoring under the basket. In the losing effort the Panthers were led by Mylan Crews with 15 points and Kelsie Shafer put up a double double with 12 points and 10 rebounds.
