Head Coach Lisa Bluder:
(On team defense)
“We had defensive problems in tonight’s game. We started the second half very poorly. It might have been the worst five minutes of basketball we’ve played all year.”

“Offense was not a problem tonight, it was defense, we just couldn’t get any defensive stops. That was our breaking point tonight.”

“We rebounded well, we just had too many turnovers, gave up too many shots, and couldn’t get a stop on defense.”

(On Ohio State)
“A lot of things went pretty easy for them tonight. They were feeling good, all of their players shot above their average.”

“They just started to click and hit on all cylinders. It’s frustrating to lose but we lost to a good team.”

Senior Kristi Faulkner
(On defense)
“We can’t have turnovers like we did tonight, we have to use better judgment.”

“We can’t afford to give up any points in transition, that’s something we have to work on.”

Junior Jamie Cavey:
(On her performance – career high 33 points)
“We used what the defense gave us, which allowed me to open up a bit more.”

(On team performance)
“It was very frustrating, we wanted to do it, wanted to win, but we couldn’t get it done.”
