Alexandria Richards:

“Well, I was going in for the steal but it just didn’t happen. When we were both going for the ball the girl hit me from behind and I just kind of went over. To be honest I felt like I was flipping over and I kind of made it more dramatic because I knew it would break the fall a little bit. You just keep moving with the motion so you don’t land that hard. When I first stepped on the court, I thought ‘This is serious.’ It was amazing to be on the parquet. At first I was overwhelmed by it. I was thinking, ‘Oh my gosh’ but once you get into the heat of the game its just like going on any other court. The adrenaline kicks in and you don’t think about anything but what’s going on in the game.”
