|Head Coach Kim Mulkey|
On the game against OCU:
"I thought some good things that were done: I thought that we held them to 49 points. That's playing okay defense. I thought the 29 turnovers we created. That's activity. You've got to play to your strengths. I still believe you have to have post touches. They're so conscious of setting screens for guard play that they're forgetting to post up. We didn't have enough post touches and anybody that's good is going to require us to have post touches. That first group is playing together well, but they've been in the system a while."
On the second half:
"I didn't plan it. I just wanted to see five freshmen start the second half. I think a big part of their problem is, and not all of them, their out of shape. They can't play at an intense level for long periods of time and that's something that comes with time. It took us out of the flow, and that's okay. That's why you play exhibitions. These games mean nothing. It took us out of the flow when I completely started the freshman group and yet at the same time they did some things that were good."
On any surprises during these exhibition games:
"I didn't learn anything I didn't observe in practice. There are those kids that are gamers that you don't ever notice them in practice, but turn on the lights and they may show you something that you didn't see. Pretty much everything I thought has panned out. We're a team that's got a lot of good things. We've just got to grow up."
|Senior PG Odyssey Sims|
On the tempo of the game:
"I feel like we came out normal. We ran. We pushed the ball. We executed our offense and we played basketball."
On having post players who can run:
"It helps a lot. I like to have post players who can run hard just because when they do run and they get it, they are doing their job. Anytime I can get it to them it is always a reward."
|Freshman P Khadijiah Cave|
On the second half and all the freshman playing:
"It's fun, because as the season goes, we will all be out there and we will all have to play together. It's fun to see who we have and what we can do as all freshman."
On learning from the rough moments:
"Practice makes perfect so just with time it will get better and better."
On her work on the board:
"I feel like as if I can do something besides scoring. I can get rebounds. I can block. You don't just have to score to help the team out. So I helped by blocking and rebounding.
