NCAA WOMEN'S BASKETBALL
GW Coach Joe McKeown
On stopping Richmond's Kate Flavin:
"Whitney Allen and Liz Dancause did a great job on her. They made her work for everything. I think they took away her aggressiveness. I was really proud of our defense. We were a little sloppy with our zone sometimes, but we contested every shot."
On bouncing back after losing at Xavier:
"We've played 16 games, and it seems like 15 of them have been on the road. We're just glad to be playing at home."
Senior Anna Montañana
On the chemistry between her and Kim Beck:
"Kim sees the floor the same way I see it. Normally I would throw the ball into the stands [laughs], but I was happy she was there. As we play more minutes together, our chemistry improves. Now we can find each other easily because we see the game the same way."
On holding Kate Flavin to eight points:
"We did a great job boxing her out because she gets so many points from offensive rebounds and assists. She's not a player who gets the points by herself. She relies a lot on her teammates."
Freshman Kimberly Beck
On the chemistry with her and Montañana:
"Playing more and more with Anna, you get to know where she's going. The crowd doesn't [laughs], but we're working well together in our games."
