Player and Coach Quotes
Arizona Head Coach Niya Butts
"Oh wow, first of all I'm not very happy with our effort. New Mexico shot the ball well. They did a lot of things that we were lacking. There are a lot of things we have to work on tomorrow."
"New Mexico is a really good program. We had a lack of energy. I didn't expect us to come out like we did. New Mexico is a quality team. They are one of the most poised teams we've played. They are a well coached team. What they do is they keep coming."
"Our heart just wasn't in it tonight. From the very start our body language and energy just wasn't there."
On Davellyn Whyte
"I expect her to be a productive player on this team night in and night out."
Junior forward Ify Ibekwe
"We didn't have any energy. That's something we need to work on as a team. It's frustrating. They didn't miss and they executed well."
"They scouted us very well. They sat on my right side. I think they really executed well. We needed to find a way and we didn't." We had a good shoot around today. We just came out flat."
Freshman guard Davellyn Whyte
On the difference of college basketball from high school
"The pace is different. You know who you're playing against. In high school you don't really scout any teams."
On New Mexico
"They came out harder than us. Instead of us getting motivated when they came out scoring, we held our heads down."
