Thoughts from Coach Carlee Cottrell:
"I was proud of how the team responded after our talk at half time. They came back out with good intensity. We executed the game plan well but fell short in the last 48 seconds. We have a quick turn around with our next game tomorrow! I'm interested to see how the women respond."
Indiana University Kokomo will return to the court tomorrow, December 19 when they travel to Whiting, Ind. to take on Calumet College of St. Joseph at 6:00 pm.
