Box Score |
Head Coach Cindy Stein
On team play in the first half:
"We had a lot of breakdowns; a lot of mental breakdowns, our weak side defense was nonexistent. I think we came strong in the second half but obviously we dug ourselves a hole."
On Teams play in Big 12 conference play:
"We need to do everything we can to get back on track, this is a very good Missouri team, and we have not shown it as late, and obviously that is my responsibility and we will do whatever it takes to get back on track."
On Chelsea Aubry:
"Out lack of second and third efforts sometimes allowed Aubry to get open shots."
On EeTisha Riddle:
"I think two things happened, obviously Tish (Riddle) wanted the ball more, and obviously we were getting her the ball. Our emphasis is always to get the ball in the paint and I though obviously Tish (Riddle) is a big presence in the paint."
Senior Center EeTisha Riddle
On motivation in second half:
"I was thinking about how I was getting outplayed by their post players, in the first half I wasn't giving much effort on defense, I told myself I wasn't playing very well at all."
Head Coach Connie Yori
On losing the big lead:
"We have been a team this year that likes to make things difficult, and today was no different. They made a huge run but we stayed composed at the end."
On 12-0 run to end first half:
"It was really good to have that kind of cushion, it is better to go into the locker room up 19, rather than 13 or 14, especially the way our team has played. I though that was big."
On the play of Chelsea Aubry (26 pts 11-13)
"We only got 15 minutes out of our leading scorer, so we needed someone else to come through for us, and I think Chelsea (Aubry) realized it and went to work"
Senior Forward Chelsea Aubry
On her career high performance (scored her 800th career point as well):
"I guess I was due, I thought my match up was really good, I could take them off the dribble, and if they backed off I could hit the shot."
On her match up against Missouri defenders:
"It was easier to just drive all the way to the hoop. When I get on the go it is hard for any defender to try and defend."
