Michigan State 67, Iowa 60

Feb. 17, 2005

Recap | Box Score

Head Coach Lisa Bluder
(on Iowa’s loss)
“I thought we had great effort tonight. We had wonderful defense for 35 minutes of the game and we just let up in the last five minutes.”

“We did a good job on their perimeter players defensively.”

(on team outlook)
“I have every belief that I can muster that we are going to win the next three games and get in the NCAA Tournament. We have to play with the same intensity that we played with the last week and a half.”

“We played #2 and #9 in the country and we played with them. We have to use that as confidence going into the next three games.”

“The players know they can beat Michigan. They know what’s at stake.”

Junior Crystal Smith
(on the last 5 minutes)
“We went into a lapse and couldn’t make a shot.”

Senior Jamie Cavey
(on short rest before Saturday’s game vs. Michigan)
“We are going to have to get used to it. That’s what’s going to happen in the Big Ten Tournament and NCAA Tournament.”
