"This game was about seeing what we could do," he said. "The girls are disappointed (in the loss), but we are playing aggressively and clean (with no intentional fouls) and we are getting better with each game. We are learning as we go."

Shelby Smith topped the Dayton girls with four rebounds, while Bickelhaupt put up 16 points, two of which were 3-pointers.
