HEAD COACH Sherri Murrell, WASHINGTON STATE
"The best thing about this team is character, these kids never stop fighting. The last game of the season really showed the type of character these kids have. Every kid stayed for the summer and worked out. We have a team with a lot of character.
"What a difference a year makes. They (the returnees) are comfortable and confident. The addition of the newcomers will do nothing but help us.
"The number one thing we need to do to win is play with confidence. We also need early success, we need to take care of the ball and improve our defense.
"We need to look back and be proud of our journey, even though we had the season we had last year. This year, I want us to be proud of our team. We are constantly fighting to get better."
SENIOR FORWARD Bianca McCall, WASHINGTON STATE
"As far as last season, we learned how to learn from success. Maybe not in the win and loss columns, but by achieving the little goals we learned."
"In the off-season, we, as a team, focused on chemistry. Individually, I worked on improving my strength. I am never really satisfied with myself, there is always room to improve."
