Great game the other night...this team is certainly promising. Just wantedto say, hi, keep up the good work and that were having fun following you andthe Bears.
'Thanks for your comments. We are really on an upswing after being up anddown. This group has been extremely coachable. We're building ourfoundation this season. We're looking to get over the hump and get some wins.'
This is more of a suggestion then anything else..Tell the girls to believe in themselves and have fun! Maybe they shouldstop thinking so much about making the shot and just breathe and take theshot. There a young team and are working hard it will come with a littleconfidence and patience. But it can't be forced.
'Thanks. I think they're looking to do that now that they've gone throughthe learning process. I think against Arizona you saw the team taking openshots when they had them. We showed we are capable of hitting the outsideshot as we made a season-best nine three pointers.'
