“Well it seems that this team can turn it on when they want to. We have to have a little more consistency when you turn the page to March. On Sunday it’s a whole new ballgame because you’re playing really, really elite teams. So we need 40 minutes. And I think when they can turn it on it’s dangerous. But we want that consistency throughout the game,” said Drury coach Molly Miller.
