On the game... "We have to have some carryover from practice to the games by getting stops. We're a good defensive team; we're a very good defensive team. We work hard in the practice setting. We go out in the game and get lazy. I challenged them at halftime to step up and stop letting people just score on them at will and what an effort in the second half. We were down 16 with 16 minutes to go and they could have quit, but this team they kept fighting and I'm hurting for them. I have a locker room full of players that are hurting. There wasn't a player in that locker room that wasn't crying or upset because they gave everything they had. They wanted to win. I don't know when it's going to happen, we're in every game and in this one we made every play that we had to make to win that game, Arkansas just made one more. I'm proud of my basketball team. It's going to happen, I don't know when and I can't tell them when, but we're going to keep working."
On Monique Jackson... "Mo Jackson, what a half. Tia Faleru struggled a bit today and when I looked down the bench to see who I was going to replace her with, Mo (Jackson) kind of stood up so I put her in. It showed me she wanted to play. I'll tell you what; Mo Jackson has been battling in practice. I challenged her in practice and her success tonight was deserved. I expect her to have much more success if she keeps practicing as well as she has been."
On the five players on the floor at the end ... "They we're playing well together, they clicked. They wanted to stay in, nobody asked to come out. Shequila Joseph got her fourth foul and looked at me with the `don't take me out' look, and when a player does that you leave them in. I knew she would figure out a way to play with her fouls. She wanted to be in there, every one of them wanted to be in there. It hurts me for them. We played a team on the road, which at one time was in the top 25; we came on their home court and had an opportunity at the very end to beat them. I'm proud of them. If we keep that effort up, we'll have something really good happen to us soon."
