Julie Brase

"Credit Santa Barbara for battling the entire game, they would not go away.
We played as a team and pulled it out."

"All week in practice we worked on the guards penetrating and dishing the
ball to the post players. When they are double teamed they kicked the ball
out to the guards."

On being the second leading rebounder on the night:
"I didn't even realize that I had gotten so many rebounds. I just boxed out
and the ball fell inyo my hands."

"The defensive intensity was great. The end of the first half we had a big
run but we allowed them to claw their way back into the game in the second
half because I think we got caught up in celebrating our big lead."

"We were pumped to play a team ranked as high as them. Coach B wanted to
win really badly- she was really intense in practice this week."

Felecity Willis:

"I played a subpar game tonight. I don't really care about my stats though
as long as we get the win and we did tonight."

"As guards we need to become more aggressive on the glass. Our guards need
to crash and not allow for second chance points by the opposition."

"Our guard play was huge all around tonight. Coming off the bench, those
guards really provided a real lift for us. This was an overall team effort
tonight and its great to have wins where everybody contributes."

Tatum Brown:

"They are a great team. I was really focused tonight because I was
confidence I could have a big game given my recent success against them."

"The key for me was my patience. I just let the game come into place and I
knew I would get my opportunities."

"I love playing a physical game. I knew they would be physical and I had to
be strong with my shots going up and I converted on my attempts tonight."

"This was a pretty frustrating game for us. Every time we would climb back
into the game, they would make a run and distance themselves from us. Our
defense just didn't adjust."

On Tatum Brown:

"She a pretty good post player. We just couldn't get our hands on those
laubs and they burned us."

Stacy Clinesmith:

"When we get down as far as we did we just need to change our defense
because when we play pressure defense, our offense is off and running. We
picked it up in the second half but couldn't climb all the way back."

""It was pretty frustrating to not pull even with them all night. We
battled back but we need to work on battling harder."
"Fatigue played a factor for us tonight. They were fired up and we need to
learn to fight through it."
