Forward Krista Warren

"We knew we could run on (Team Concept). We have been working on our transition game in practice and really went out there and executed today."

"(Team Concept) was a team with a lot of talent. They had a lot of former Pac-10 players on their squad, so this game showed us what to expect from some of the teams we will be facing during the season."

Center Shawntinice Polk

"Our team defense was great today. We played really well as a team all-around."

"Our team is anxious for LSU, just because it is the start of the season and we are ready to get out there and prove ourselves."


"Everyone on our team is very unselfish. We all like getting that extra pass and we always work to get everyone open. We play team basketball and if we continue to play like that it will help us during the season."

Forward CoCoa Sanford

"We showed a lot of hustle today. We played our game and we could see the strengths and weakness our team has as we prepare for LSU."

"We are really looking forward to playing LSU. Our team doesn't think about their rank or anything like that, we just go out there and play. We treat each team like they are the defending national champions, because we play each game hard no matter who it is against."

Assistant Head Coach Denise Ianello (Head Coach Joan Bonvicini absent because of a family illness)

"This will be a big week of practice as we get ready for LSU on Friday. Physically we can beat LSU, but it's important to mentally believe that we can beat them."

"This win was good for our team confidence. It was nice playing Team Concept, because it gave us the chance to work different combinations. We got the chance to see who worked well together."

"The team came out today ready to play. We wanted to focus our attention on Arizona and wanted to improve as a team for Friday. We have improved so much from the last exhibition game to now. We have improved defensively. We stressed rebounding in practice. It was nice to see that we out rebounded Team Concept by 30. The team made a conscious effort to improve on that."

"(Shawntinice) Polke does a great job for us defensively. She makes it tough for any team to get inside when she's there. She does a great job blocking shots."

On the team scoring 100 points

"The team thought it was fun. It was fun for CoCoa (Sanford) to make the 100th point. I think she was a little nervous."
