|| BAYLOR QUOTES
On the game:
"I thought the foul trouble changed the whole complexion of the first half and I just had to weather the storm once we got in foul trouble. We started the second half like we actually did the game, and extended the lead and we did OK."
On the stretch where Brittney Griner was on the bench in foul trouble:
"I think we were up 16, I'm not exactly sure, and then they cut it. Then Brooklyn [Pope] got in foul trouble and then we had Sune [Agbuke]. We had several with two fouls. I never felt the sense that I had to put Griner back in. I felt like we were just going to need to weather the storm and it allowed some other players to gain some valuable experience on the road. And we have two more to go."
On setting the tone at the beginning of the second half:
"We ran, just like we did at the beginning of the game. We came out, pushed the ball and got a lot of transition baskets. I thought we needed to get to the foul line more. We didn't get to the foul line as much as I would've liked in the first half. We didn't panic. We shouldn't panic. You have too much experience on that floor. We're just trying to finish this thing off the right way and you have a lot of kids that don't get many minutes that got to play today."
On the physicality of the game and her fouls:
"I guess you'd say those were two silly fouls on me. I wouldn't say it was that physical, [just] silly fouls I picked up."
On the frustration of sitting on the bench:
"It's always frustrating when you have to sit on the bench and you can't help your team out. They cut it to four; I didn't get too worried though because I know my team and I know that they'll respond."
On setting the tone in the second half:
"I sat out most of the first half, so I knew I had to come out the second half and start off strong and attack and just do something to give my team a start."
