THEY SAID IT
Baylor Head Coach Ellen White on Baylor's victory
"They did an excellent job. Both sides were very balanced, and they all rode well. We saw some things to work on; some things we need to clear up to make us a little sharper for the next teams we go up against, but it's nothing we can't clean up or fix up."
