POSTGAME QUOTES - BAYLOR
Baylor Head Coach Kim Mulkey
On the game...
"There are still some things (that we need to work on). I thought we turned the ball over too much tonight. I didn't think we made free throws tonight. So as complimentary as I can be about some of the things that we were trying to do, and they were good doing the things we asked, I would like to look down (at the stat sheet) and see that we have less than 10 turnovers and I would like to look down here and see that we are shooting pretty good from the foul line. Some of the things that we did tonight tell me this basketball team is growing and listening."
On Brittney Griner setting the single-season block record...
"They say records are meant to be broken. I'm not sure that when she finishes her four years that anyone will ever come close to her shot block record."
On her 250th career win...
"This is about the kids. This is what I get paid to do, to coach. Because of (the kids) I get to have a little record. It's secondary to everything else that is going on."
On the play of Shanay Washington...
"I thought Shanay was one of the ones that I was really proud of. She is really trying to hone in and focus on that defensive end and help us become a defensive stopper so Melissa (Jones) and Kelli (Griffin) don't always have to be the ones doing it."
Freshman Guard Nae-Nae Hayden
On the defensive intensity in the second half...
"We didn't look up at the score. Coach always wants me to play defense to get better and to get ready for the 16 games we're about to play. So that's all I was thinking about is just defense."
Freshman Post Brittney Griner
On her first dunk of the night...
"That play was really exciting. It got everybody pumped up, and it led to another one. I was looking for it just in case (Melissa Jones threw it to me). She had thrown me one once before, and I wasn't ready. That's why I was trailing to let her know I was coming."
Junior Guard Kelli Griffin
On Brittney Griner dunking...
"I think when we see her dunk, as a team, it makes us excited. To have her get that dunk on a team this late in the season, and everybody knows she likes to dunk, it's exciting. So I was pretty hyped, pretty excited."
