Texas Southern @ No. 19 Arizona
Arizona Head Coach Joan Bonvicini Quotes:
The best thing about tonight was that I got to play everybody. Our kids work so darn hard in practice that its good to get them a reward with some minutes. I think overall the game was a little too sloppy for me, but I did think that our defense was much better in the second half.
First and foremost we have to make it a priority to take care of the ball every game. We also need to rebound better, so that our opponents don't get two and three attempts.
Tonight was a good win because it was the first time we got to actually overpower our opponent. It'll definitely take a lot more to beat Indiana in the championship game on Sunday.
On Arizona's next opponent:
I do know that Indiana has a good inside and outside game. They are well coached and definitely fundamentally sound. They can score down on the blocks and on the outside. But I'm confident in the team we have here at Arizona. This is the deepest team I've ever coached, although I'd like to score better in our half court game.
