Head Coach Joanne Boyle
"You never want to lose on a banked three-point shot. I don't think we ever should have been in that situation with the lead that we had. But we did. I think we played hard for 32 minutes, but it is not a 32 minute game."
"I'll take responsibility. We probably should have done something different at the very end to keep the ball out of Ashley Coral's hands. She is such a great player. That is on me to make that call."
On losing the ten point lead right at the start of the second half
"We didn't come out with any sort of intensity. It gave them a lot of confidence. They are a great team on their home floor and they took advantage of it. They did what they needed to do to put themselves in a position to win."
"It will be good to get home next week. We've been on the road quite a bit. It will be good to play at home. We need to take care of business. And get some wins and just get used to winning again."
On the 30-point game of DeNesha Stallworth
"She had a great game, not a perfect game. She had some meltdowns defensively, but offensively, she found her rhythm. She did a great job and she is bringing a lot to the table right now."
Freshman forward DeNesha Stallworth
"I felt good out there, real comfortable. But I am very sad that we lost. We were trying so hard. It's kind of depressing."
"I just felt real comfortable, so I didn't need to make any adjustments. I just went out there and played basketball."
"When I'm going, I'm going. I just get in this zone. I was in that zone, so I was just playing the game."
