Postgame Quotes

Arizona Head Coach Niya Butts
On last shot execution
“The team executed that play really well. We wanted to go to Ify and put the ball in her hands. She made the right decision. Their defense helped over and collapsed and we kicked it out to a shooter. It was a perfectly executed play and the shot just didn’t go down for us which was unfortunate because we really fought back and had a good second half. I was really proud of their efforts.”

On turnovers and missed free throws
“I certainly think they were major factors in the loss. It’s a 40-minute basketball game and all of your mistakes tend to add up. Certainly our free throws and our turnovers hurt us a lot."

On Ibekwe missing most of the first half with two fouls
“Anytime you don’t have one of your starters and one of the best players on your team on the floor, offensively that’s going to hurt you, especially with our limited roster. It affects our offensive flow, but she got in there in the second half and she went to work which was what we needed her to do.”
