Post-Mississippi game quotes
Feb. 23, 2009
February 22, 2009 Tad Smith Coliseum - Oxford, Miss.
Melanie Balcomb, Vanderbilt Head Coach
On the last play...
"Obviously, she didn't make it. I have to go by what the refs said. They looked at it, and you had the best ref in the country looking at it, so obviously it was too little too late." On if there was a play drawn up for the last play... "There wasn't enough time to draw up a play. She just had to push it and try to get a shot as quick as she could."
On the loss...
"It had to be one of the toughest losses since I've been at Vanderbilt." What did you tell the team when they got back to the locker room? "Not much."
On the play of Bianca Thomas...
"It's tough when you talk about their best player at halftime and then she comes out and knocks down those threes. Our focus was just not where it should be. Our focus hasn't been there on the road all year. It's very frustrating. I don't think her threes were the turning point. They just beat us. Their effort was better. They out-rebounded us."
