“Defense and rebounding wins championships. That Dominguez Hills team has been killing people off the boards. We did a good job of mitigating that,” Strickland said.
“Basically, our team starting to come out together now and it’s still early. We are still an early process. We did a good job defensively,” Strickland said.

Forward Lizzie Moore (sophomore, Biology) scored 14 points and retrieved 7 rebounds. Moore is 7-11 in field goal attempts.“I feel pretty good just because I started slow in the beginning but I just got to keep my confidence.”
“We are drilling as a team and I think if we keep this up we can really make a big break in the season,” Moore said.
Guard Jayla Green (freshman, Business) shared her thoughts about the game. “I think that my girls went in and give all they had today and put their hearts on the floor.”
“I think our energy in the bench really got us the win,” Green said.
