"It feels good to come in here and win. We kind of of turned it around after they were beating us up early in the paint, they were winning the points in the paint but we ended up winning that. Obviously our bench came in and gave us some pretty good minutes and I thought we did a really nice job rebounding in the circumstances that we didn't have Jasmine out there. You know, to come and play and win a conference game on the road by double figures without a starter, you just have to be happy going forward." â Head Coach Bob Boldon
"Hannah's going out and do her job, that's what Hannah does. That's what I think my favorite attributes of her and I think that's why her teammates appreciate her so much. So, she shows up everyday. I mean she's been sick for the last week and you wouldn't know the difference. She just goes out and plays her best and practices her best. You don't ever have to come out and give Hannah a pep talk because she's going to do her thing." â Head Coach Bob Boldon
"We knew that a big part of our team was missing so it took all of us to step up rebounding and scoring wise. I think Hannah and I really tried to fill that spot today for Jazz and walk out of here with a win today." â Yamonie Jenkins
"We knew we had to come out in the second half with more energy and shoot a little bit better than we did, we really concentrated on that. I think we ran plays a little bit better too and we were a lot more organized." â Hannah Boesinger
"It's always nice to help out our guards because our guards are scoring all of the points. Since Jazz is gone, I knew I had a little gap to fill this game. I'm happy to come out and get the team a win." â Hannah Boesinger
The Bobcats return to action on Wednesday, Feb. 1 from the Ohio heads to Mt. Pleasant, Mich. to take on MAC West foe Central Michigan. Tip-off is set for 6 p.m. and can be seen on ASN/ESPN3.
