Coach Speak: “If we aren’t making shots, we don’t like to play defense or rebound or anything. But we were able to keep our composure and say, ‘This is what we’ve got to do.’ They went out there and did it (in the fourth quarter). I think that comes from being a senior-laden team. We started hitting some shots and creating some turnovers.” — Cold Springs coach Tammy West
Up Next: Cold Springs will play No. 2 West Point in the semifinals on Thursday at 7:15 p.m.
