Iowa Head Coach Bluder
“The difference in the game was the defense and intensity. Our defense and intensity was there in the first half but not consistant in the second half. We just didn’t play defense, they scored seven points in the first 55 seconds of the second half.”

“Megan was 9-11 shooting. We need to get the ball into her hands more often when she is playing that well. She’s doing a great job for us inside and we need to get the ball inside more. Defensively we have more work to do.”

“They are very deep but [our lack of depth] got us a little bit, but it’s not an excuse.”

“The crowd of 7,000 was tremendous. You’d love to see this all the time. I believe Crystal is worth the price of a ticket to watch.”

Iowa Senior Crystal Smith“I could have worked harder. My shots didn’t go down. The intensity was better in the first half, and we didn’t play hard enough in the second half.”
