"We didn't play our best game tonight. I was disappointed with the turnovers and with getting out-rebounded, but when crunch time came and we needed baskets, we got them. We're still young and we'll make some crazy mistakes, but this team (Arizona) is gutsy."
"The key stat for this game was rebounding. We just got clocked in rebounding during the first half. We were out-rebounded by 12 in the first half, but we made up four of those rebounds in the second and those were big rebounds."
"I thought we controlled the tempo much better in the second half and did a better job on the boards. I'm pleased with our play down the stretch. We played gutsy and scrappy and came out on top."
"The X' factor tonight was Aimee Grzyb from the perimeter. She opened up and hit some crucial threes just when we needed them."
"Elizabeth Pickney really stepped up tonight and hit some big jumpshots. She didn't rebound as well as we wanted in the first half, but she did a much better job in the second."
"Kansas is a very good team. They're better than their record indicates. They were able to match up well with us in size and quickness."
KANSAS HEAD COACH MARIAN WASHINGTON
"Any time you have a great game like that going, the fewer mistakes you make, the better chance you have to be successful. We just made a few too many mistakes."
"Arizona is a much more athletic team than we are. We knew they wanted to run, and when they had a chance to do it, that's just what they did. They're a good ball club and are going to win a lot of games. They have a lot of great athletes, especially some great perimeter shooters, which we didn't have tonight."
On Arizona forward Elizabeth Pickney: "I thought she worked really well, especially without the basketball. When she had the chance to score, she was very effective. She is an outstanding talent."
