Recap

Ole Miss Head Coach Matt Insell

 On the game…
“What a game. I want to thank the Rebel Nation; we had a great crowd in here tonight. They got behind us, and it was an unbelievable game for us. We needed them every second, and it took us to the last two seconds.  I’m so proud of this team. We’ve been through a lot. We’ve been right on the cusp of this for the last five games. As easy as we were 0-5, we could have been 4-1. We’re in an eleven-game season. I challenged them that if we win these eleven games, we’ll be glad where we are at when the season is over.”

On finally getting the win…
“It’s an unbelievable feeling to get this “W”. Valencia McFarland fought for 45 minutes. Tia Faleru played 44 minutes. They gave everything they had. Tia told me, 'Coach, I’m not tired. If we have to go five more, we’ll go five more. We’re going to win this game.' She looked at all her teammates in the huddle, 'We’re not giving this game away.' Just an unbelievable game.”

 On Kenyotta Jenkins…
“She could have easily gotten down. They started picking on her a little bit there defensively and she gave some points up. She didn’t get her head down. At the end, we practice exactly what she did every single day. I told Valencia (McFarland) to go score it and if you don’t get it, Kenyotta Jenkins or Tia (Faleru) will tip it in and that’s what happened. Jenkins tipped it in.”
