Post Game Quotes

NCAA Women's Basketball
GW Coach Joe McKeown
On defensive strategy against Temple:
"I think one thing Temple has done all year is make teams pay when they helped off people to double-team (Candice) Dupree. They seem to make big plays, whether it is (Cynthia) Jordan or (Kamesha) Hariston or (Jennifer) Owens. We have to be careful that we know where everyone else is too. When you are in their situation with a player like Dupree, they have pretty much seen every defense. I just think we have to be real solid."
On GW's NCAA Tournament chances:
"I've been here a long time and this will be the ninth time we'll play in the conference championship game, so they are all special. We are going to just look at that and try to win a championship against a very good team. Whatever happens next week happens. I'm really more concerned about tomorrow night's game and then we'll let everything else work itself out."
Senior Anna Montañana
On team's play last two games:
"Right now we are really excited about being in the final. Today, we had a really tough game and the second half was intense. I think at the end things went well."
On the type of performance it will take tomorrow to beat Temple:
"By the time the final arrives, everyone is really tired. I think they are going to be tired and we will be as well, so the team that does the little things, boxes out and plays defense will get the win."
Sophomore Corinne Turner
On what they learned from the last Temple game:
"We learned the game is 40 minutes long and not just one half. We have to come out and play as hard as we can, both halves. Every game is about runs. We just have to put together more runs and be able to fight off theirs."
On her play today against Richmond:
"When it's time to play conference tournament games, all else has to go out the window. You have to step up your game and play as hard as you can. There is no room for mistakes. You have to go out there and have amnesia, as coach (McKeown) would say."
