NC State 56
Coach Joe McKeown
Onthe keys to victory:
"The biggest key was having someone like Anna Montañana, who gives you the opportunity to do so many different things. She's a point guard, power forward, center. She played all five positions tonight throughout the game. The other key was that we're starting to get consistent effort from people off the bench. Kenan Cole is making big plays and playing with a lot of confidence. Corinne Turner is doing a good job, and Kim Beck plays fearlessly. She does things that remind me she's a freshman sometimes, but for the most part she doesn't play like an ordinary freshman."
Senior Anna Montañana
On defending NC State:
"We were defending them well enought that they didn't seem to know what to do. At some points, they looked scared. They weren't executing well because they didn't have clear passing lanes inside."
Sophomore Kenan Cole
On the key to GW's comeback:
"We focused on our defensive pressure and forced turnovers. That helped get our offense going. When we started scoring and making stops on defense, that gave us more confidence."
On getting NC State in foul trouble:
"We knew they'd come in out of control because they like to attack the basket a lot. We were looking to take charges. We also knew they crashed the boards hard, so we were looking to box out.
