Marsha’s Minute

“We are very much looking forward to competing with Kentucky,” said head coach Marsha Beasley.  They are an excellent team and have one of the best shooters in the NCAA Henrik Larsen. This match is a great opportunity for us to use what we've been working on in practice. We're trying some new things and I'm really looking forward to the team working on those techniques in a match setting.”
