Outside of those three, though, only three other players have hit for double figures in games - Harris (twice), sophomore guard-forward India Hairston (once) and senior guard Tatiyana Wood (three times).
"We have a lot of different role players,'' said Crowder. "We don't have an all-star and I think that's the thing that makes us so special.
"I think our record reflects us trying to figure out who we are, who works best where and I think we've finally found the right mix, when to play people. Throughout the season, just like everybody else, we've had our ups and downs. I think we've picked just the right time. We know we are in the right place and we should be winning.''
Harris said the Cougars have an atmosphere of caring that surrounds the squad.
"We're more like a family,'' said the three-year starter. "Everybody gets along with each other and encourages each other. We all encourage each other to work on stuff we're not really as good at.''
Walker said nobody wants the season to end.
"We want to keep going,'' she said. "Just keep playing basketball as long as we can. We love basketball. A couple of us have played together for a long time and went to the same middle school and a couple competed against each other.
"A lot of team work, passing the ball to the right people, making sure the post players are getting right down there. It's our senior year and we're trying to make it farther. I'm going to enjoy it, have fun and play basketball.''
Calabrese said he has been noticing that passion from his players.
"We don't necessarily have the tallest players or the greatest leapers in the world,'' said the Capital coach, "but we hustle after loose balls. [Thursday] night [at Greenbrier East] there were probably eight occasions where we're on the floor for loose balls.''
Calabrese said he is also seeing a laser-like focus.
"You could tell in the locker room and the last couple of days of practice they were prepared,'' he said of the upset of East. "They don't want the season to end.
"The game against South Charleston in the second round of the sectional, you could tell we just didn't want to lose that game. They're playing hard. We've had our difficulties over the last several years. They've all stepped in and accepted their roles. That was really nice this year."
Crowder said she cherishes how things have worked out.
She said when she and Harris came out for the team as freshmen, only four girls showed up and no one was sure if there would be a team. And last year was their first with a winning record.
"This team has really come together,'' said Crowder, a three-year starter on the basketball team and four-year starter on the soccer team who is making her first trip to states in either sport. "I'd just like to thank the coaches for all the faith they've had in us. Just the encouraging words they've had. I can't really explain it. It's a great group of girls. It's really magical to be at this point.''
