Arizona Head Coach Joan Bonvicini: “Today we played a team game. We were unselfish and we had good passing.”


“Polkey almost had a triple double. And we purposely kept her minutes down.”


“We’ve been really struggling to play through the second half. We wanted to keep the intensity up and play hard. It was a good win for us.”


“When we play hard and we really put a lot of pressure on the other team, we’re very, very good. I thought our rebounding was better in the second half, too.”


“We just want to continue to get better. I thought initially we didn’t do a good job on transition defense, but after we got ourselves established, we did a pretty good job.”


“We have a lot of quick players. We’re getting out and going, and it puts a lot of pressure on the other team.”


“Tomorrow is going to be a good game. Weber State does a good job of shooting, boxing out and rebounding. Weber State executes well, and they can get it done down low, too. We’ll defend them by getting out and pressuring them and getting through screens.”



Senior Guard Dee-Dee Wheeler: “We want to keep our home win streak going. We don’t want to lose at home. We don’t want to lose on the road, either, but we want to make McKale one of the hardest places to play in the country.”


“We did a good job taking care of the ball. (UNCG) didn’t really pressure us very well.”


“Tonight is probably the first night we’ve played a 40-minute game. Everybody stayed up. Everybody did a good job. We have to continue playing that way.”


“Tonight was an opportunity for our post players to show what they can do.”


“We had great passes. It starts on the defensive end. We force bad shots, we get the rebound and we go. We played really unselfish tonight.”


“We’re the type of team that gives every team respect, even if we’re winning by 50 points.”


“Weber State is a good shooting team. They’ve got some streaky shooters, but once they get hot, they hit a lot of shots.”



Freshman Guard Ashley Whisonant:

“Tonight I stepped up and played harder than usual. I played hard earlier in the season, but I got in a slump and I came back tonight.”


“In the second half I just couldn’t focus on making lay-ups, but we kept the pressure on.”


“We know how to step up in big games and we just have to rely on the team.”


“Today we showed that we can play a 40-minute game, which was the first time. Normally, we play about a 25-minute game.”


“Coach (Bonvicini) told me she wants me to be a spark off the bench, so that’s what I’m going to do.”
