Ohio Head Coach Sylvia Crawley
On Auburn's dominance in the paint...
"That is not what we expected. We have to do a better job with our post defense and not make it so easy for the players to score inside. We have to block out better and get some rebounds."
On Rachel Frederick's off-night and Ohio's three-point shooting...
"We have more weapons than just Rachel Frederick. We shot with confidence, and normally those shots fall. We missed some shots early and that messed with our confidence. We have to learn to drive to the basket, shoot higher percentage shots and get to the free throw line. I thought we did that early in the second half, and then we got away from it a little bit. We are going to learn from this experience and this is going to make us a better team."
Ohio Guard Lauren Kohn
On her game...
"I was feeling pretty confident with my shot tonight and my teammates had confidence in me, so I just kept shooting when open shots kept coming to me."
On Ohio's game plan...
"Our plan wasn't to necessarily shoot from outside, but those shots happen to be open for us. Our game plan switched because and we ended up driving to the basket and looking for open shooters, which was there tonight, but we just didn't knock them down."
