Long Beach State Head Coach Brian Gimmillaro "I'm very proud of the whole team, it's nice to be able to come back from being down by two games. Volleyball is the most emotional game I've ever seen and this kind of drama is the beauty of the sport."
Long Beach State Player Brittany Hochevar "We found a way to win through eye contact, we're known as the "come back kids" and came through by looking inside."
Long Beach Stated Player Tayyiba Haneef "I almost fainted when I heard I had 36 kills, I knew the ball was coming to me and I had to put it down."
Santa Clara University Head Coach Jon Wallace "These girls will remember this match for the rest of their lives. I can't say how proud I am of the whole team. I always say that if we're going down, we're going down swinging.
"Long Beach played extremely well, and were very smooth."
Santa Clara University Player Roz Pelayo "They started passing really well in the third game. We stayed aggressive until the end and we went out swinging like we always do."
