On the game... "South Carolina has a good team; they are ranked seventh in the country. They are big inside and they really took advantage of that and there was not a lot they could do about. They are big and athletic. We've played against some teams with their size but not nearly as athletic. We fought in the second half, we dug ourselves a hole but we came out in the second half and we fought. We gave up 99 because of the way we had to play because we we're down. We're going move past this one and get ready for Florida on Sunday. We had a lot of passion today and we're going to come out with even more on Sunday and get that win."
Kenyotta Jenkins... "I was pleased with Kenyotta in the first half and how she stepped up and how she battled in there. I benched Tia in the first half, because I believe in Tia's ability and she came out and had her shot blocked a few times and she let that affect her. Kenyotta came in and we didn't miss a beat and it hurt us when she got her third foul and it hurt when we had to take her out. Without her and Tia they made a little push on us. I told Kenyotta she played well and we'll need her to play like that on Sunday."
On Tia Faleru in the second half... "I wasn't mad at Tia, she came out and got soft because they got physical with her and we can't do that, we have to play through things and keep battling. She did that in the second half and had 18. The great thing about it is that she responded. What you saw in the second half from Tia Faleru you'll have on Sunday. We have Kenyotta and Tia together on Sunday; it will be hard to beat us."
