Baylor head coach Kim Mulkey
On the game against UTSA...
"We still haven't adjusted well to the fouls. I thought we had way too many fouls today. We gave them way too many free throws. We gave them too many points, 62 points is not good."
On Odyssey Sims and Niya Johnson...
"Obviously Odyssey is our leader out there. She was pretty special shooting the perimeter shot today. I thought Niya ran the game very well and made sure teammates got easy shots. She had a good game."
On giving up 62 points...
"I'm not real happy about it, and that's the only thing I told them after the game. 62 points wont get it done. Maybe against great teams, but not against a team you have a 30 or 40 point lead."
On the key to defense...
"Continue to run. We're very young. We're trying to still work on our transition defense. We're letting our young ones in. We're still trying to teach them and they are trying to learn as were teaching them on the court and off the court."
On her game against UTSA...
"I was trying to expand my game a little better. Instead of me just me dishing, just keep scoring a little more; that's what I plan on doing. It makes it harder to defend all five especially when we're scoring so I just tried to get my teammates involved and also score."
UTSA Head Coach Lubomyr Lichoczak
"We've got a young team and I think by the end of the year we'll be pretty good. At this point we're playing in spurts, playing in halves, and when we've got a good half going, I think we look tremendous. We specifically came to this tournament to help us get ready for Conference USA play. For us, this tournament was a positive experience. We've got work to do and we're going to continue to do that."
On 20 turnovers in the first half:
"That was very alarming. Again, I attribute it to just being a little jittery and knowing you're playing the number 10 team in the country on their home floor. We played a little too fast and didn't read things correctly."
On the second half:
"If we put two halves together like the second half, it would've been a ball game and you never know what can happen. That's the message I give my team and that's the message we can continue to learn and grow with."
