Team RecordsHouston (15 6, 4 3), ECU (10 9, 2 4)Macy’s opening statement”Heck of a win, I’m just so proud of this basketball team. I think that was a hurdle we needed to overcome, playing well in overtime. I thought the response was exactly what we needed it to be.”
Macy on the Necole Hope
“I think we all saw that Coco (Necole Hope) had no fear in the overtime period, so the ball was going to her. When they fouled out we had that quick moment to huddle, called the set play, and then Alex delivered it on the money, and give CoCo credit, because earlier in the year I had been telling her, you’re leaving points on the board over and over because she hasn’t been catching and converting it. She has gotten better and better at it, and now all of a sudden a game winner. I am really proud of her and the way responded and give Alex credit to go on the left side of the floor and just lay that pass out.”
Hope on the win
“It’s Amazing. We are always in the lab, every day, working hard, going at each other in practice. It just feels amazing to win; any team loves to win and we did it together. We are a family so I think it’s even more meaningful.”
