HEAD COACH Ryun Williams
(On the end)
“We made just enough plays, just enough. Defensively, outstanding and I thought the start of that second half was really key for us. We built an enough of a margin to survive. I was really proud of the winning plays we made late, which were Varsho’s steal, Heimstra keeping that ball alive to give us one more attempt with four seconds to go to stretch the lead that got it to three. Those are things we are surely proud of. We just don’t need to be put in those situations. It gives us something to keep building on in practice.”
(On the bench)
“Our bench is going to have to be good. I think some of our best scoring comes from the bench. Spotton is really talented you guys. She’s learning how to operate in the positions we’re putting her in, and she’s playing with great confidence. We’re comfortable throwing her the ball there. She played magnificently tonight.”
(On Caitlin Duffy)
“For her first game, to be thrown in that fire, to be trapped and pressured like she did and to face that quickness, I thought Duffy was really crucial. I don’t think we would have won that game if we didn’t have Duffy on that floor tonight. She’s a really good ball handler and good decision maker. She’s a good foul shooter. It’s a tough spot to put a freshman in her first game, coming off of a broken wrist. I’m really proud of what she gave us tonight.”
“We’re just learning. Nobody likes losing, especially when you have an opportunity to win. They’re starting to establish an identity, which doesn’t happen overnight. We’ve got to play with a greater toughness. We still have to grow in that area. They’re learning to make winning plays.”
“We wanted to make sure we own the paint, defensively. We made them shoot perimeter shots. We wanted to take away their strengths.”
(On lead going from 15 to one)
“It’s scary, but you just have to do next play, next play, next play. And just watching your kids go timid, is not fun.”
(on clicking on the court)
“We’ve got a long ways to go. We can play a lot cleaner. I think we’re still learning how to play offensively.”
