NOV. 5, 2012 • ATTENDANCE: 7,622

  Head Coach Kim Mulkey

On not playing Brittney Griner:
"I'm redshirting her. Now, she might talk me out of it before daylight, but for now I'm redshirting her. Put it in the headlines across the country. Honestly, it was a coach's decision. She's not in trouble or hurt."

On Tarleton State:
"Coach Hearne is a trooper. We called Fayetteville State and we called Coach Hearne and I thought his team played hard. I don't look at the scoreboard. I would've tuned the scoreboard off. It's about people making memories and kids getting better and competing."

On the guard play:
"I thought our guards did what they were supposed to do. They were in passing lanes and made things happen. I think they set the tone there early and just did a very good job."

On the freshmen play:
"I liked the play of our freshmen. It's hard when you substitute and take players out of the flow of the game. I just wish we had Alexis (Prince). We didn't anticipate the injury, but we have to be patient with it. She's as impatient as I probably am as a coach. Everyday, that freshmen group is going against a 40-0 team full of seniors. The frustration of that starts to show in practice, but they look good in games."

  Senior Post Brooklyn Pope

On what she focused on today:
"We focus on the little things like defense. Destiny (Williams) and I will probably get chewed out for Kiara (Wright) going off like she did. It's not about going out and scoring a lot of points. You really want to work on the things that matter most in the big games."

  Junior Point Guard Odyssey Sims

On her play and what she worked on tonight:
"I focused on getting better at everything, both offensively and defensively. I think our team can get lazy, especially on the defensive end. When I play hard and pressure the ball, that makes everyone around me play better."

  Head Coach Ronnie Hearne

On the play of Keyra Johnson:
"She looked a little more competent at the point guard position. Baylor was nice to us at the end and backed off a little bit, but I believe in Keyra Johnson. She is coachable and very athletic. Once she learns how to handle the pressure, she will be fine."

On scheduling Baylor:
"Baylor has been awful nice to us. They really took care of us here. They showed us around the facilities and around the campus. People think I am crazy for doing this, but I think it was the right thing to do. It might not help Baylor to play us, but it will certainly help us."
