"We had a talk about last night about what we needed from the team and what everybody needed to bring individually, and we implemented that in practice this morning and took it and put it into the match. It got shaky for a second (in the second set), but we said when went to locker room after that set, 'That's not how we play, we're turning new leaf and picking it up from here.'" - IU East's Madison Yoder
