Despite the ton of positive stats against South Central, the Comets were off again, on again in the 3-game set.
"Consistancy just was no there," said Comet coach Ronda Schlechte. "We had too many ups and downs. We are trying to find our groove without Lindsay on the floor, but we will get there. We didn't give up and the girls kept fighting to pull off the win."
