WOLVES QUOTES

“I think we started very well today and are executing the adjustments to the things we saw yesterday. Hofstra did a good job applying service line pressure after that first set to get us out of rhythm offensively and it impacted our ability to score “Unfortunately it also made us lose focus on those defensive adjustments as the game went on. We will continue to focus on adaptation, but it’s a quick turnaround as we face St. Francis Brooklyn on Wednesday,” the head coach said. Kristin Belzung.
