We need her to keep playing like that if we are going to go far in this tournament.
I'm happy we were successful and I felt like we got great contributions from different people. We rebounded well and we played good defense, but we need to do a better job offensively.
I think the trend in this bracket is big-scoring posts. It seems to be the thing to have. I'm glad we have two of them (juniors Brooke Smith and Kristen Newlin).
There were some times that I wondered what we were doing and who this team was in the Stanford uniform. We are used to depending on our offensive execution. Tomorrow, we will go back to the drawing board.
It is disappointing to get this close and to see the ball go in the basket and then have it taken away from you. I just think that's a really tough way to lose a game. It really surprised me that that would be called then. ... It seems at that point it would be a no-call.
It seems like the strengths of a lot of these teams are really similar. Everybody's got excellent post players.
I saw some really uncharacteristic things, too, and I'm glad we got those out of our system. I think we can do a better job offensively.
We were exposed as not a very gritty team. We didn't go the defensive work we needed to do and that fueled their offense. This is going to be a challenge for our team and I hope it's a valuable lesson because we are going to see more of this.
She wants to win more than anything, so she'll do what it takes. A lot of people want to win, but they won't do what it takes. When your best players are your hardest workers, you have the chance to be very good.
