Green told the players the main thing she wants to see Friday is effort.
“I just want us to play as hard as we possibly can play,” Green said. “I want to see us leave everything out there, every ounce of us. Just leave it on the floor and have no regrets. Whatever happens, I want to walk off that floor with zero regrets, especially these seniors. I want them to leave it all out there really. We don’t have to get into too much about that with this group because they’ve been here. Two of these seniors have been to the NCAA tournament three out of their four years, so they are experienced. They know what it’s about, and they know what it takes to win here, too, because they’re freshman year they were part of our Elite Eight team. We’re coming here not just to be happy to be here. We’re coming in here with a goal and a task at hand to accomplish.
