Minnesota Head Coach Pam Borton
On the game as a whole...
I thought we played better the other night. This was a little bit of a reality check. I thought our players faced adversity out there, but I thought we did some good things. I think we as coaches saw some things from our team and individual players. If Amanda gets into foul trouble we have to figure out what we are going to do to score inside.
On learning from this game and moving forward...
I think there are some things from this game we can learn from. They had hustle, they were tougher than we were today and they had 18 offensive rebounds. I think we were exposed in some areas, but it's a good thing it happened now so that we have a whole week to work on it and get better.
