"I'm really proud of the way our kids hung in there. Some things didn't go our way for a large part of tonight, we just kind of kept plugging away and do the things we were supposed to do. We got ourselves in some early foul trouble, and late for that matter. But you got to give these kids credit. Kids stepped up. I mean, Kendall Jessing made one of the best plays she's ever made. She cut across the paint and kicked it out for an open shot, rebounded the basketball after sitting there for 39 minutes, so, that's what a team's about. Kids willing to step up when they get the opportunity and I'm very proud of them for doing that." â Head coach Bob Boldon
"I thought as far as kids stepping up and making plays I thought we did a good job. As far as improving our offense, I don't think we did that, I don't think we took any steps further with our offensive execution. We took steps forward with our kids making plays. They got to be in a tough environment with a good team. A team that's won seven in a row who beat an SEC team by 20. So to come in here and win this game makes me very happy, and it does show some toughness. But, as you play games in this time of the year, it's still early December, right? I mean we have a long way to go before we're ready for MAC play. You like these experiences that you hope that you can learn from them and try to get better and move forward with them.â â Head coach Bob Boldon
"(Kiki) was terrific. She had two fouls two minutes into the game and was able to sit down for a minute and hit the reset button. I'm glad she's on our team." â Head coach Bob Boldon
