Recap |  Final Stats

Head Coach Michelle Bento-Jackson:

On the team's 27 assists and good ball movement:
"It was tremendous. A lot of the passes came off of strong and aggressive penetration and drawing defenders in. I thought Ashley [Graham] and Chandice [Cronk]'s decision-making was exceptional tonight. They found the open players, and obviously when you do those things, you will get open looks."

On Elizabeth Doran's contributions in the past two starts:
"Liz gives us consistency and is solid on both ends of the floor. She's very versatile, we can play her at many different places on the perimeter as well as the inside both offensively and defensively."

On the veteran leadership stepping up and setting the pace:
"I was very proud of the intensity and leadership that our upperclassmen brought tonight. Obviously they are bringing the intangibles on a consistent basis, and if we can keep doing those things, we will play better."

On bouncing back with a hot shooting night:
"The reason why we got the open looks that we did tonight was because our execution was just much better. It was very poor against Saint Mary's, and our shot selection was not good, but we worked a lot on our offense this week in practice and I think it showed tonight."
