UNBC’s Abby Gibb

On the matchup with the Pandas…
“Alberta is really strong, and their intensity level is always quite high. We need to come in and initiate that intensity, so they have to match us. We should spread the ball around, so we can spread out the offense, and create open looks for our players.”

On finishing the final six games strongly…
“This is very important. We hope to host a playoff game at UNBC, so pushing all the way through is very important. Focusing on all the little things will be key to our success.”

On focusing on the process, rather than the scoreboard…
“Obviously, it would be great to win this weekend, and I have no doubt that we can. However, it’s important to focus play by play, and game by game, and by doing that, we can produce the best results possible.”
