Post Game Quotes
Minnesota Head Coach Pam Borton
"I thought that Richmond did a great job and had a great game plan. I felt like they were the tougher team today and did a nice job on the boards. We needed some other players to step up and make shots, because they did a great job of defending Rachel (Banham) and Micaella (Riche). They left other players open for wide-open shots, but we couldn't get them to fall. It's tough to win when you only shoot 30 percent."
On being in the game late in the second half..
"We were still in the game with seven minutes to go, we were only down by five. We needed to get rebounds, we needed to get stops and we needed to make plays on the offensive end, and that did not happen."
On shaking off the loss and focusing on James Madison tomorrow...
"Tomorrow is a new day. That is what is great about having games back-to-back-to-back. You can play another game tomorrow and it is a new day and a new game."
