Quotes from GS WBB

  • “I thought we needed to play with energy and effort today and I think we did that. We lost the rebound war, but I thought we competed and battled on the boards against a strong opponent. We withstood their run, but I was pleased with our poise under the pressure.”- Coach Anita Howard 
  • “We gone take in these dubs and then get right back to it on Monday. Celebrate a little bit and get right back to work. I think we got Old Dominion coming up, we lost to them the first time, so we got a little chip on our shoulder.”- Ja’Nya Love-Hill
