QUOTE OF THE GAME
“Cal State LA did a great job of testing us in a lot of areas and exploiting some of our weaknesses. They were really physical which gave us some problems around the rim. This gave us some great film that we can show our young ladies on where we need to be better.” --Coach Stacie Terry-Hutson
