The past two games have gone from one extreme to theother. A lot of emotions were up and down, and as a team we had to cometogether and find what the problem was after our loss to Duke.

In the postgame locker room it was a tense moment. Coach Meierwas not happy… more like furious! The loss really made us look at ourselves inthe mirror. I think together we responded well to her message, and practice thenext day was an eye-opener. We can be great when we want to.

The next game showed how we put all that effort in ourworkouts. We had Virginia Tech and we won by over 20 points. There was apositive outlook after a game, unlike after Duke. Everyone played a good game,but at the same time there was plenty that needed to be worked on.

Instead of having our weekly off day on Monday we had it Tuesdayto better prepare our bodies for Thursday’s game vs. Clemson. I’m lookingforward to getting back on the court and hopefully bringing back an ACC roadwin.
