QUOTING AWC HEAD COACH JASON SMITH:
 

"We had a good look at it tonight. That's what you play for. We executed a lot of our game plan very well. I thought the amount of serves that we missed was a big key. I'm very proud of our team-the way that we worked and came together throughout the course of the season. For me, personally, the worst thing about losing tonight is that I don't get to coach this particular group anymore."
