Recap | Box Score

Iowa Head Coach Lisa Bluder
“I’m happy with our defense tonight, especially holding them to 18 points in the first half. I was happy with our rebounding in the second half. We came out and out-rebounded them 26-15. This game was hard to get into a flow, but that was good for us. We are an excellent free-throw shooting team and tonight we proved that, shooting 90 percent from the line.”

“We know that no matter what happens to our offense, if we play solid defense, we can win basketball games. When we start clicking on both sides, we’re going to be an explosive basketball team. We just need to continue to do a good job on getting around those screens and communicating.”

“We just kept pounding it in there and we knew eventually Skouby or JoAnn [Hamlin] would start getting hot or that they would tire, so we just kept pounding it in.”

#44 Megan Skouby
“I thought we were slacking a little bit after halftime, but our main emphasis was to go out there and get the boards. That’s been our strength this season and we wanted to go out there and show that, but we still have a lot of work to do.”
