Coach Thurston was very pleased at the way The Terrier’s came out and we’re able to pull out a win.

“Tonight, Army pressed us much of the later part of the game, and in years past, we might have faltered but tonight I thought we did a great job expecting the pressure and making the right adjustments. I am very proud of our kids. This game’s is in the books, we got the victory, they can’t take that away from us, we’re happy and it’s on to the next game.” he said.

The Terriers seem to be on a winning high after their performance against UPenn on Saturday.

“Everything is how you bounce back, we won and we had two big wins. We have to bounce back and we can’t get too big headed and we have to play against St. John’s the same way we played against Army” commented Junior forward Jaymee Veney who scored her first season double-double.
