UCLA's Mariana Aquino hits against Florida State's defense


“Obviously there’s a lot of teams out there that’s never won a national championship. They’re not easy to win.” – Florida St. Head Coach Chris Poole

“She has to give herself compliments only if she hits over 500. 462 in her mind isn’t good enough.” – UCLA Head Coach Mike Sealy on Rachael Kidder


Not only was this Florida State’s first-ever appearance in the Finals, but it was also the first appearance ever by a team from the ACC.
