"We came together as a team. We have to keep winning to keep playing. This is the perfect time to be coming together."
University of Hawaii coach Bob Coolen on the game"We came out more relaxed today, but we had a problem stranding runners on the bases. Texas Tech hit the ball well when they needed to. It was a little fustrating leaving base runners on."
