Postgame Quotes - 1/11/14 vs. Central Arkansas
On the adjustments her team made before the game:
"We didn’t do a lot of new stuff during the game. We needed to take on identity-wise in how we play and polish up the things we do and make sure we do them well all the time."
On the spark Atoe' Jackson provided:
"Atoe’ was a huge spark for our team coming off the bench in the first half. She really got us going at both ends of the court."
On the maturity her team is showing:
"I love how we are finally getting to the point where our roles are more and more defined. If we have areas where we need to put a band-aid on it we have girls we can call on to do that."
On how the upperclassman played:
"Christian wasn’t showing up for us statistically for us in the first half. But she was gluing a lot of pieces together for us. The upperclassman rose to the challenge I gave them after our loss a week ago. I am very pleased with them today."
On the difference between the two halves:
"There was an eight-minute blur in the second half. We got a rhythm going in the first half and I think in the second half we got away from some of those things that got us that rhythm."
FRESHMAN GUARD DOROTTYA BALLA (13 PTS, 2-4 3FG)
On combining with sister Bernadett for a good game:
"On the court she is not my sister but my teammate. It is a good feeling. She played a great game today."
SENIOR GUARD CHRISTIAN KEY (8 PTS, 3 AST)
On adjusting to the point guard position:
It’s different. Last year I didn’t have the ball in my hands that much. I feel like I’m learning a lot because I’ve never been a point guard like that. It is frustrating when you have turnovers but it is getting easier."
On how important is it to get two wins next week:
"It’s very important because we lost a home game last week and we can’t do that anymore. It’s important we get both games next week."
