Head Coach Lisa Bluder
“I thought Upper Iowa played very well, they also played very hard and they did some things that Quincy didn’t do for us and I think that is very good for us to see. We’ve played against two different kinds of man to man defense to get us ready for Texas State and I think that was a good thing. It gives us some good opportunities to work on different defenses.”

“I was really happy with our rebounding tonight, we held them to only two offensive rebounds and we had 18 ourselves. I was also really happy with our points in the paint. Thirty-six paint points is very good, that means we are getting some high percentage shots. I wished we’d have converted a few more down there that we didn’t, but that will come in time.”

Senior Guard Kristi Smith
on offense issues in the first half
“We have a new offense and a lot of new people out there so we got to get our continuity there and our timing down. But I am confident with a little more practice; we will get to where we need to be.”

Junior Forward JoAnn Hamlin
on her injury
“I wouldn’t say I am 100% pain free, but I am free of enough pain for the trainers to let me play. On a scale to ten if you’re at a two, you can play. Every athlete has nagging pains and aches and you have to play through those sometimes. I am at about a two.”
