Baylor Head Coach Kim Mulkey:
On the Angela Tisdale Scoring 1000 career points:
"Not many point guards score. She makes everyone else look better. Angela is the best shooting point guard that I have ever coached at Baylor, and this team needs her to be a shooter and a scorer. I am happy for her."
On Post Play:
"Rice probably did us a favor when they went to doubling post players. They didn't do that early in the game. When they got the lead they went and doubled Danielle (Wilson) and we work on that every day in practice. Our drills incorporate when the opposing team doubles the post, and she found Rachel on the backside a lot, and that allowed us to get back into the ball game."
On the Half Time Score:
"You could not help but be happy that we were tied. If we were within 10 at halftime with the way we were playing we would still have been happy. This is a veteran basketball team in the sense that they have been in this situation, but they are youthful in age."
Baylor Post Rachel Allison:
On Baylor's slow:
"We handled it very well. We made a nice little comeback late in the half, and we finished our job in the second."
On Post Play:
"The coaches have stressed that the post players need a lot of touches and we need to practice together because our guards are unbelievable and we have to produce there, so I think we look for each other a lot."
Baylor Guard Angela Tisdale:
On Baylor's first half deficit:
"Of course when they come out like that in the first half you are going to panic a little bit because you are thinking that you are not getting things going. I think we were just out of shape and we needed to get our wind back. In the second half we just came out relaxed."
On the Half Time Feel:
"I think it was a better feeling than it was in the first half because we were down so much and tying the game going into the half, and we had a good start in the second half."
