"Once again, our girls played well (Monday night)," Humphrey said. "We have some work to do to clean things up a bit before we take on Hermann.
"Hermann is extremely large in stature and they have the experience together on the hardwood. We have to keep our mistakes to a minimum and get off to a fast start."
