Arizona head coach: Joan Bonvicini

"Tonight's win was a big confidence boost for us. We played hard and played defense a lot better."

"Every time we made a run and came up with a score, we became more confident with our play. Our team looked loose and had fun being out there on the floor. The way we played tonight is the way we are suppose to look every game. It was a good win."

On Krista Warren...

"Krista (Warren) played the best game she has ever played here at home. She contributed under the basket, cleaning up the boards and had a big game offensively."

On Candice Allen...


"Candice (Allen) gives us a different style of play at her size. She is a real slasher who reads the floor well and anticipates what is going to happen next. She played really well tonight."

"Our team played very unselfish tonight. We shot the ball well, and it was probably the best second half we have had so far this season. We were given an opportunity today and we took advantage of it today."

"We played tough defense out there tonight. We used a lot of pressure with our press and we were successful at getting in the passing lanes."

On Washington...

"Washington is an excellent team from three-point range. They have great guards and post players who are physical, smart and versatile. We need to control the boards and be more physical if we are to come away with a victory."

Player Quotes

Candice Allen:
"This game was a huge confidence booster. We've lost huge, and we needed this one. We're ready for Washington."

"We were pumped, we watched our mid season highlights before the game, and we came out ready to play."

"It was fun, we ran around and played. Everyone scored, we felt bad but we still had fun."

"I'm getting there (back to 100%), this was only my second game and second practice. I would say that I am at 86%."

"I didn't know what my season high was, I'm not playing to break records."

Krista Warren:
"My mentality is to get our team winning again. The mentality for not just me but for the team is that way."

"If we win the next couple at home, and hope for a couple of loses, we can get back up there (standings)."

"Tonight we just knew we needed to get out there and get our confidence back up. We talked as a team before the game, and we just needed to play well. We finally got in a flow, it took a little while in the first half, but once we got going we played well. Even our subs played well, instead of brining us down, the pushed us up."
