On her team's shooting performance (61.7%): "Actually, I was disappointed in the first half because of how many lay-ups and point-blank shots that they missed. But they are good shooters and they are very unselfish. They know who to get it to."
"We're a lot more confident defensively. We slowed them down and made them run a lot more things at half court. We were there on the catch and we challenged every shot."
"We were very prepared for this game. We've been practicing as hard as we've ever practiced. They know each other very well. The depth on the team has allowed our upperclassmen to get better. We played the reserves against the starters the other day in practice, and the reserves won. The reserves are keeping the starters on their toes."
"Since Dee, Caroline, and Carla have been so consistently good through three years in the SEC there was a lot of focus on them. I think that will happen a lot in the first couple of [SEC] games. When I'm playing the four a lot of post players don't want to come out on the perimeter."
