Head Coach Mike Morris
On teams performance
"I am very proud of our team and how we played. We knew it was going to be an uphill battle since Davidson beat us at our place about a week or so ago. I'm very pleased with the way we started the game...In both games so far, we've defended well and it's given us a chance to relax and keep our poise. From the offensive standpoint, we shot the ball well early...We are excited about playing in the conference finals tomorrow."
"I have to give credit to our senior leadership...They have set the tone for the tournament. We knew Davidson would make a run...We have to give credit to our senior leadership because of their poise and we knew they'd have our back"
Sophomore Shelby Campbell
On Davidson's Run
"We knew they were going to make a run. They are a good team...we knew at halftime they'd make a run, but we knew we had to keep our composure and stay together as a team...I felt like when they had their run we'd be OK and calm ourselves down and take the hit."
Head Coach Michele Savage
Statement on the game ... "I was really disappointed in the outcome of the game. I told our players we had to play forty minutes of basketball and I thought we played twenty minutes. We didn't have the same energy in the first half that we did in the second half. They're the defending champs. You can't play a half game against the defending champs."
On not being able to cut the lead to less than seven ... "I thought we had some crucial turnovers down the stretch. We were trying to get the ball in to a few people and I thought we forced it a couple of times. We were so tentative that we made some mistakes with the ball. It's probably a combination of just being a little exhausted. The comeback was a lot, to cut it to seven. I think we were gassed at that point which led to some turnovers."
Sophomore guard Laura Murray
Thoughts on the season... "This season has been a lot of fun. We lost three games in the season. It's very disappointing to go out here and lose to Samford, who we've beaten. But they are a great team, not taking anything away from them. As Coach said, we can't get down by twenty in one half. It's just so difficult to overcome. But I think overall it's been a good season. It just didn't end like we wanted it to end up."
