Lloyd Noble Center - Norman, Okla.
Host: University of Oklahoma
George Washington 71, Oklahoma 61
Head Coach Joe McKeown
On the game:
"I'm proud of my team tonight. It was a great atmosphere and the Oklahoma fans made it a great home court for them. Our kids really took control in the second half of the game. I thought we played with a lot of poise in a difficult environment."
"I give Oklahoma a lot of credit. They had a terrific year. It speaks a lot of their program to be back in the tournament after losing players to graduation and injuries. I'm sure they'll be hanging around for a while.
"I watched them against Colorado and Texas. I saw them get behind in both games and figure out ways to get back in the game. I told my team it would be a 40-minute game."
Cathy Joens (Senior, Guard/Forward)
On GW's second half run:
"Basketball is a game of runs and we knew at halftime that we were down by three and had to come out strong.in the second half. You have to give Oklahoma credit because they came back and cut our lead to one. But when we got up, I think we were just excited and we wanted to keep the run going."
On guarding OU's Maria Villarroel:
"She's a great player. There's times that we focus on different players and obviously we didn't focus on her enough in the first half and we needed to step it up in the second half."
Ugo Oha (Junior, Center)
On getting more rebounds in the second half:
"Coming into halftime, I read on the board that OU had 23 rebounds and we had 11. I just tried to emphasize to my teammates that in order to win this game that we had to get on the boards. Our rebounding was one of our weak points but I know we're going to bounce back."
