HEAD COACH KAREN GALLAGHER ON THE BADGERS: "I love the energy and I love the additude on our team. We're not going to back down to anybody. We play a tough schedule this year and I did that on purpose. I want to be prepared by the time we get to the Big Ten season. We are playing teams that are in the top 20 in the country."
