UC Santa Barbara
Head Coach: Mark French
"Our team had a great game inside tonight. Kate (Christensen) has been a solid player for us for her entire career. She has taken a major step up in her game and has become a dominant force inside the paint."
"Kate's (Christensen) ability to put up the points she did against a quality program with great post players is a big accomplishment. Our players did an excellent job of getting her the ball. We are very proud of her."
"I'm very proud of the come back we were able to put together in the first half. We just tried to keep the game close. I knew that if we continued to play up-tempo basketball and run on them (Arizona), it would help us down the stretch. Arizona has played three games in five days and that is a very hard thing to do."
"I'm very hopeful that our team will ride this victory and build their confidence. It is always a challenge to compete against a Pac-10 opponent."
On Joan Bonvicini...
"Joan's (Bonvicini) teams always have confidence and play hard. It feels good to finally get a win against her. She is a great coach who always wants to play the best competition out there no matter who it is. She has been gracious letting our program compete with her team and that reflects the professionalism that she has."
