Mission Management & Trust 2005 Fiesta Bowl Classic
Dec. 3, 2005
Tulane vs. Chicago State
Tulane Head Coach Lisa Stockton: “I didn’t think we played very well the entire game. It really hurt to have (Jennifer) Sands in foul trouble. We’re a very young team and we’ve been in a lot of close games, it’s just a matter of getting the experience to close these type of games out.”
“Every time we play we are getting better. We have yet to play a home game, but these experiences are going to make us better. I like what our team is doing.”
“We obviously need to create more scoring. We need to tighten our defense up, especially late in the game. Those are the main things we need to improve on. We have been rebounding really well early in the season, but that was not the case today.”
Chicago State Head Coach Angela Jackson: “This was a great win for our program. Ayesha [Neasley] was big for us down the stretch. She came up with some big baskets. Tina [Hill] was a great floor leader and did what a great floor leader does ?- got the ball to people who were in position to score. I thought we did a much better job of rebounding and of buckling down on defense as the game went on."
