Head Coach Lisa Bluder
(on Iowa’s victory)
“I thought that this was a very good win for our program. It’s just fun with this team because every night somebody different is rising to the occasion.”

(on individual performances)
“Jo had a tremendous game and shot extremely well from three-point range. Jenna hit a big three for us when we only had a one-point lead. Crystal’s effort to save that ball from going out-of-bounds on the offensive rebound and keeping that possession in our favor and then scoring after that was an incredible play.”

(on Marquette)
“I thought Marquette played extremely well. They’re a very dangerous basketball team. They have a lot of weapons. We could never put them away.”

(on Iowa’s three-point shooting)
“We had some nice open looks. They were doubling off our outside players and letting us have the outside shot. I thought our post did a nice job of reading (Marquette’s defense) and getting the ball to our guards and they made the open threes.”

Senior Jenna Armstorng
(on her tendency to hit big three-pointers against Marquette)
“They’re probably glad that they’ll never see me again.”

Junior Johanna Solverson
(on her three-point shooting)
“I’m more relaxed and more calm this year. I’m taking smarter shots and not getting so down on myself when I would miss a shot.”

Senior Jamie Cavey
(on team’s 7-0 start)
“Everyone is stepping up at different times and no one is scared to be a leader.”
