Quotable:
"They all played their heart out today. Kiki scored the ball little bit more than some of the other kids. Central Michigan is a really good team and we played them really well, I'm really pleased with our effort. We didn't really shoot the ball quite as well and I thought we had some defensive lapses, but this was a great effort and we'll see them again in a couple of weeks and we'll do a better job then." – Head Coach Bob Boldon

"I think with Jasmine out they've collectively stepped up and have done a lot of things to help each other out. It's a tough loss and we knew it was going to be a tough game with them coming off a couple losses on the road and then have a home game. You knew you were going to get a great effort from them." – Head Coach Bob Boldon

Coming Up:
The Bobcats return to Athens for a big matchup against MAC West opponent, Toledo. Tip-off is set for 3 p.m. and will follow the Ohio men’s basketball game at noon.
