Assessing Saturday's match, TMU head coach Allan Vince said, "I was very pleased to see how our ladies responded to the first set of the match. Arizona Christian played very strong volleyball. They had precision in their passing, well-placed tips, and aggressive serving. Our girls adapted very quickly, and were able to take control of the match early on. I was very proud to see that we were able to take the lead early and sustain it throughout the rest of the match. These last two matches were good preparation for Biola on Tuesday."
