Head Coach Joe McKeown
On GW's defense:
"We did a great job on defense. They started making three's all the way from the White House at one point--rainbows! They hit about three in a row and forced us to change. We went zone just to give them a different look. That enabled us to open it up in the last three or four minutes."
On GW's 8-0 run to end the first half:
"We're so young. We've got to build on anything sometimes to get a little momentum. We've been struggling at the end of the half with time and the score. If we had the ball and the last shot, we seemed to shoot too quick, and the other team would score. I was really happy we were able to finish out the half with an 8-0 run."
On GW's upcoming game versus NC State:
"Tuesday night, if you're a player, you show up for this game. It'll be fun. I told the team that we beat them a couple of years ago in a really tough game. Now a couple of years ago for me is 1994 or 95. NC State is like us. They've been a national power for 15 years. They've been in the top 20 every year like we have. Their Final Four team beat us here in overtime in just a phenomenal game. They have great tradition and a Hall of Fame coach. I think it will be a fun game.
On the play of Kimberly Beck:
"She doesn't play like a freshman. She has the poise of an upperclassman. To play five of your first seven college games on the road--at Tennessee, at Oregon, at BYU--and face really good players who have really been around, she's held her own with everybody."
On Kristina Gineitis' performance:
"She's really practiced well the last two weeks and earned some playing time. Everyone's double-teaming Simmonds and Montanana, so it enables us to stretch people out. One thing Kris does well is that she's very physical on defense. She went in there against the big kids tonight and really disturbed them, disrupted them a little b it. She's a great shooter in practice, but she hasn't had the opportunities to get comfortable in the game, but hopefully we'll get to that point."
