Head Coach Wes Moore
On being down at halftime
"I reminded them that the other team has already played a game, so the first half is to their advantage. We got the jitters out of the way and we started feeling our way around a little bit. I feel like in the second half you have advantage because you have the fresh legs. They knocked down some big shots and played great defense."
On late tipoff
"There is no doubt that there was a long day...I think they are ready to get out and play...It takes a while to settle down and they did a nice job of doing that."
On Taylor Hall
"The coaches were telling me to give her a blow and then she hit another 3...and that made her stay out there longer...Again, you have to go to the hot hand and she was knocking down some big shots."
Head Coach Jackie Carson
"We knew coming into this we had to put together 40 minutes of basketball and unfortunately we only put together 20. Our girls fought and this is a great lesson for us and what we need to build on in the future and what it takes to win a good championship. A lot of credit goes to Chattanooga because they came out and showed that fire in the second half and made big shots and we just froze."
