THEY SAID IT

"We just want it more than everyone else," said Susquehanna Valley junior center Maeve Donnelly. "We have to come out with the attitude and be more intense than everyone else, and that's been working so far, so it's been really fun."

"We had really good ball movement today and a lot of extra passes, and when you do that we make the big shots," Sabers senior guard Hannah Haskell added.

"They're just hungry," said Susquehanna Valley head coach Chad Freije. "Everyday in practice you can tell they really want it. They all have the same goal. We work really hard everyday at practice. You can see how it transitions into games. Just the way we play defense, run the floor and rebound. You can tell they're just really hungry. They want to win."
