Coach Patty Gasso on preparing for a rivalry series:
“We’re a pretty poised team, and I think we understand the atmosphere is gonna be good for us to be in. The fact that it’s a sellout is fun to be a part of, but our ultimate goal is to be better every time we play. We’re looking at opportunities to host regionals, super regionals. There are some things at stake, but do we really need to change what we’ve been doing? No. And that’s important, is that we remain who we are wherever we end up.”
