Arizona Postgame Quotes
#53 Soana Lucet, Junior, Forward
On benefiting from Georgia Tech's pressure defense
"We worked on their pressure because we knew they would press. We wanted to make some good decisions and it worked out for us early on. When they trap, someone was going to be open and I found myself alone under the basket."
Head Coach Niya Butts
On coaching in front of her hometown crowd
"It wasn't my entire hometown [Americus, Ga.], but they did come out. It felt pretty good. When you come back closer to home and get some support, it definitely is a good thing."
On Georgia Tech's pressure affecting Arizona
"They shot the ball pretty well. Even before shooting very well, the fouls to our core group hurt more than anything. We could never get anything going offensively."
On what Arizona needs to do to bounce back against next opponent
"We got UC-Riverside on Wednesday and we just to keep on pushing forward. We can't let a game or a performance like this effect future games. If you do that, then it is going to get into your head and we certainly can?t do that. But, I do believe our group will be O.K."
