“We want to be tough but we have to be efficient. I am proud of these girls for what they worked on tonight and I hope they can make themselves proud of how hard they work again. We are close to the consistent fun, exciting model we discuss every day” – Coach Green
The Thunderwolves will take on McMaster again tomorrow at 7:00pm in the Thunderdome.
