Despite coming up short Head Coach T'Shon Young seen improvement, "The team played better than in the previous tournament. I see a lot of improvement. We did a much better job going after the ball and minimizing mistakes but struggled with serving. We lost two of the sets by only 4 points but we had 5 serving errors in one, and 9 in the other. It makes a difference."
