Iowa Head Coach Lisa Bluder“We had a tough stretch but this team stayed positive. We came in to practice this week and really practiced extremely hard. We knew that we played three on the road and I am happy with the way that we came out as a very confident team. We set the tone early with our defense and it set the tone for the whole game.”

“We did a better job of setting up our screens tonight. We found our shooters tonight and that is a good thing. We were trying to push more and get the defense back on their heels.”

Iowa forward JoAnn Hamlin“You would like to win every game but coming off three losses, we really wanted to get back on a winning streak at home. We looked at last year and we were in the same position so we knew that we could turn it around.”

Iowa guard Kristi Smith“We just had to stay positive. We know that we are a good team and just needed to block out all the outside influence and stick together. We have practiced intense and hard and we wanted to come out and get a good win.”
