Timberwolves roll easily over Wolverines

(Continued)

NORMAN —

“It’s going to be a dogfight,” he said. “We’re obviously familiar with each other and know what they can do. It’s going to come down to who makes shots.”

For the Tigers, who are on a roll after last week’s encouraging performance to North coupled with Thursday’s upset win, Saturday’s game will be a mental one. Coach Nichole Copeland blamed a few late mental lapses for last week’s loss, and they are errors the Tigers are capable of fixing in the rematch.

“We know each other really well and it’s going to be about mental mistakes,” she said. “We’ll break them down on film and figure out what we need to do. The most important thing is we can’t relax, because that’s when we make mistakes. Right now no one expects anything of us. We just get to come out Saturday and play another basketball game. We’re emphasizing that — to just come out and enjoy it.”
