It's not something we like to do. But for the last two games it's worked out for us.

I just played my game, went out and tried to do as much as I could for my team, and it ended up being a triple-double.. I had no idea I was close to it until after the game. I never pay attention to statistics.

Taking care of the ball is very important, and from what we've seen they've caused quite a few turnovers and trouble for other teams. It's going to be key for us to take care of the ball against the full-court press that they're likely to put on.

We need to take care of the ball. From what we've seen, their press can cause a lot of turnovers. We need to take care of the ball and keep moving it around.

We had confidence in that we knew we would get open looks if we ran our offense right. We just had to make some defensive stops and we did that.

Getting a 5 seed is awesome, the highest seed we've ever had, and we're staying close to home. We've played there before (in November), so we're a little familiar with it, and that should be in our favor.

We're just looking to go out and finish conference strong, improving like we have been and hopefully finish out with six more wins before we start the conference tournament.

She's a great player. She'd just elevate right over you and make those shots. She's just a junior and she is going to be an amazing player next year.
