NCAA WOMEN'S BASKETBALL
GW Coach Joe McKeown
On the team's offensive performance:
"First of all, it's good to be at home. We've been on the road for most of our schedule. We're also starting to get comfortable with each other. It's been tough to replace the big-time scorers from the past few years with essentially nine new players. Now, we're starting to communicate and play better together."
On freshman Sarah Jo Lwarence's performance:
"She's just starting to figure out how explosive she is and the things she's good at. Trying to make the adjustment to college basketball is tough when you're at Tennessee, at Oregon, and places like that. She was thrown right into the fire. She reminds me a Cathy Joens a lot because you have to throw her out of the gym. She has a lot of passion for the game."
Freshman Sarah-Jo Lawrence
On what sparked her play:
"Reading the defense and cutting, plus the great passers on our team. We're starting to play together. We got a lot of practice in over Christmas break, and we're getting to know each other. It's really starting to come together."
On what GW needs to work on:
"We need to crash the boards, especially on offense. We also need to play at our level and not play down to their level, no matter who we're playing against."
Senior Jessica Simmonds
On what's been working for GW on offense:
"Together as a team, we're playing hard and everyone is contributing from every position. We have a lot of good players coming off the bench contributing to our offense. That's what's getting it done so far."
On beginning the conference schedule:
"We know that if we play hard and come together, we can take anybody on. It doesn't matter what name you have on your shirt. We're going to play hard and come out with a win."
