Coach Trent Milby stated, "with all the adversity this group has dealt with this year, I am happy for them. Especially the two seniors (Johnesha Warren and K.K. Butler and Anna Loveless who fought and hung in and played without quitting. That shows a lot about these young ladies. Competing and playing for a National Championship will be a good way for the two seniors to end their basketball careers."
