"When we went into the Washington game, we learned a lot about ourselves in that game," Knepp said. "We came back to practice the next day and everybody had their head up and everybody gave max effort and we grew from that game and became a better basketball team. I fully expect us to come into practice with our heads up and go hard tomorrow and learn from our mistakes. We will go over them in film, we'll look at them and try to improve on what we did wrong. It's a great game to play before the sectional. If we didn't face that kind of pressure until then it would surprise us. I'm glad we faced it now to be able to make some fixes and to get better as a team."
Despite the loss, Knepp was able to look back at all this senior class has accomplished in four years that has seen the North Daviess program reach new heights from going to 4-17 as freshman to nine wins as sophomore's and double digit wins in back-to-back seasons.
"It's an amazing group of young ladies," Knepp said. "Meghan, Sabra, Maggie and Abby — they came in as freshman and they took a lot of punishment and they never gave up and kept getting better. They would apply what they learned each night. Where they lifted this program to is amazing. Two 15-plus seasons in a row, which hadn't been done before, a state ranking this year — I don't ever recall a North Daviess girls team being ranked in the state, especially the entire season. It's just an amazing group of young ladies, who are great leaders, great students and just good people."
