MELBOURNE, Fla. —
Earlier in the week, the Bonners said they weren’t sure what to expect out of this team at the start of the season because they had so many freshmen.
What they got was one heck of a team, one heck of a ride to the No. 2 spot in the country.
“I never thought we would come this far,” Bast said. “We just (need to) keep our heads up and be proud of what we did.”
Riggs said she had been dreaming of being in the national title game since the first week of her freshman year.
“They made my dream come true, being in this game, on this night,” she said.
