“It’s obviously all still sinking in for us. Just watching the guys and enjoying how they’re celebrating means the most to me right now,” Said Milwaukee Wave Head Coach Guiliano Oliviero. “I know how much hard work they put in all season long, and to watch them celebrate and enjoy what they worked for is probably the best feeling of all.”
