“I thought tonight we played a good team game,” Miami Trace head coach Kayla Dettwiller said. “We ran the floor, offensively. Everybody was touching the ball, getting looks at the basket.

“Defensively, I thought that might have been one of our better team defensive efforts,” Dettwiller said. “Especially early on, we were getting rotations on their No. 22, Ellie Snyder. She’s a nice player. I thought we had a lot of kids who stepped over and helped tonight to kind of take some pressure off of our guards.

“We’ve got one day to prepare for London,” Dettwiller said. “We know that they had one kid on their roster who wasn’t here today who is a normal starter. We’ll see what we can do and get ready for them for Wednesday.”
