Mentor normally gets the best of Aiken in the second half when they play. This time, while Mentor was firmly on top, Aiken really came through in those last couple of minutes to win it for the Firebirds.
Devastating to see Mi Mi so emotional at the end of the game. The hug from Aiken made me teary. I am glad Mi Mi got the opportunity to run out the game, although I do think she still needs to work on her decision making on the feed and the quality of her drive option down the court.
I think Cassidy’s main improvement this year is her defence. Last year she used to jog in defence and it drove me nuts. Love her extra hustle this year, it really is wearing down her opposition more (which then opens her up in attack).
