HEAD COACH MISTI CUSSENOn her team's improvement over the last two months:
"I know we had some hiccups today, but that’s how we’re described this team. We will get one plate going and then forget about another, but I think we are learning how to balance more than one thing now."
On her end-of-game rotation:
"I kept a line up in that would give us offensive fire power, because HBU is streaky. Big games for Christian and Dorka really helped.
On the strong play of freshman Noora Jaervikangas:
"Noora has steadily gotten better all semester. She has become one of our best communicators on defense."
On the good play from her freshmen:
"Our freshman class has had to face some tough competition, but I really feel like they are gaining confidence now."
On accomplishing Thursday's main objective:
"Our goal was to go 1-0 tonight. We’ll enjoy it for 2 hours and get ready for Saturday."
FRESHMAN DOROTTYA BALLA (30 PTS, 3 STL)
On her career night:
"I don’t care about the number; I just care about wins. I just have to thank my teammates for getting me the ball in a position to score."
SENIOR CHRISTIAN KEY (18 PTS, 6 AST)
On the team's 2nd half comeback:
"We just knew we had to dig in on the defensive end. They were getting some easy shots, but our offense was really flowing thanks to Dorka. We just had to dig in at the end of the game."
