POST-GAME QUOTES

“The first quarter I thought was very good, 33-21,” said head coach Brittney Ezell. “Then we went cold from the floor. In games like this, it’s not about playing the opponent – it’s about what are we doing to get better? You’re either solving the problem or you are the problem. I thought we solved the free throw problem tonight. We had double-digit offensive rebounds against South Carolina, which I feel good about. I thought we did a good job of taking care of the ball for the most part with a freshman point guard making her first start. It was difficult not having your starting point guard. They are giving us everything they’ve got right now. They’re giving us all of their heart. They’re working at it. I have to keep coaching my team.”
