Inteview with Head Coach Carla Berry:
“We took care of the ball tonight and Fairhope’s physicality didn’t deter us. Our pressure defense created good offense for us, overall it was a good night. Regardless of our record we haven’t peaked yet and it takes time to get that chemistry on the floor.”

Shanice Battle – 16 pts.
Alexis McInroy – 14 pts.
