"This was a great way to finish the regular season," said Ziegler. "It was a huge win on the road against a very good Stryker team.
"We want to carry the momentum from today into the tournament. I thought our defensive pressure was very good. We stressed to guard shooters and rebound, and the girls carried it out.
"We did a great job at the freethrow line to finish the game. This game will only make us better for the tournament coming up. I'm proud of what we've done so far, but there are still more goals to obtain ahead of us."
