Minnesota Head Coach Pam Borton

Opening Statement
"It was a good game for us going into break. We have 12 days off going into exams. I thought we had great offensive efficiency tonight, especially against a defense we have not seen all year. I thought we did a great job attacking that for most of the game. I am glad we put that (game) in the bank heading into finals."

On Adjusting to Robert Morris
"I don't think it took long to adjust to their defense at all. We had 48 points at halftime and ended the game with 82 points. I think it was us, defensively, being able to get a handle on (Artemis Spanou). I thought our defense was below average today."

On the mindset coming in
"I think it is the same as any other game. They played a good schedule. I knew (Artemis Spanou) was a special player coming in, and you just do not want to be the one team (to lose to Robert Morris). Lou Mataly and Ashley Raveli are good three-point shooters. If you have good three point shooters they can keep you in the game."

 

Freshman guard Shayne Mullaney

On her strong shooting day
"Coming into this game I felt pretty good. My shot felt on. I felt like I needed to step up since Rachel (Banham) was not really hitting her shots today. They had a pretty good zone defense, so once we moved the ball and got in the flow of the game, I was able to knock down some shots."

On her improvement
"I feel like every game I am trying to improve. I feel like I am developing my role on the team and getting confident in what I am doing."

On stepping up in Mikayla Bailey's absence
"(Mikayla Bailey) brings a lot of intensity and defensive pressure to our team. I felt like I really had to step up when I found out I was starting. (Mikayla Bailey) really started us defensively. It is a lot to fill, but I am doing my best. It will be great to have her back in a couple of weeks."
