On the way the freshmen played:
"I felt the freshmen did fine. I think the conditioning for several of them was a problem. Obviously they have to learn to play for longer stretches at an intense level. I just told them to go play. We weren't looking at the scoreboard, we were just glad to be playing a game."
On how the returning players played:
"The returning players were a little rusty, but you kind of expect that for the first game. You can't assume that they will be at the same level they finished last season. So we will still go to work tomorrow and get better."
On Brittney Griner and Kristina Higgins playing together:
"I really wanted to see that. I know what I'm going to get from Brooklyn [Pope] out there, but I needed to see how Kristina could play with Brittney, and I thought it went well."
|Senior Post Brittney Griner|
On what she can take away from an exhibition game:
"I just try to get back in the flow. It's good to get the first game jitters out of the way. You try and get used to playing in front of a crowd again and you get to play with the freshmen for the first time."
|Junior Guard Odyssey Sims|
On the defensive intensity:
"We just wanted to show the freshmen that you have to keep the lead up. Just because you are up doesn't mean that you can give up layups. You can't take a play off, you have to keep playing hard."
| Freshman Post Kristina Higgins
On playing her first game at Baylor:
"I had a lot of jitters. I have never seen that many people at a basketball game. I couldn't hear anything, so I just went out there and tried to play my best. I feel like I improved in the second half."
