Opening Comment... "Great game. That's what a rivalry game is supposed to be-- two teams that play real hard. Game of runs. We made a run there to start the second half and give us a little cushion. They came right back and hit us, which I expected them to. A game against two teams that play extremely hard. I hate that we ended up on the wrong side of the game there, but very easily could have ended up on the right side."
On rising to the occasion in a rivalry game... "You know, we don't look at it like that. We play rivalry games not out of hate. I think people that go in and play rivalry games out of hate, then their players end up playing with a lot of emotion. I don't hate anybody from Mississippi State. I have nothing against them, and my players don't either. We attack this game no different than any other game that we attack. We go in, and we practice real hard for every game. Our record is not where we want it to be, but we're in the beginning stages of a process of remodeling our program and getting it back to where it needs to be. These players, I'm real happy with them not quitting on their season. I knew they would come out and play today."
On Martha Alwal's performance... "I thought we did a pretty good job on guarding her initially. I thought she kind of took over the game rebounding. She's a great rebounder. That kid right there is a very good player. She gets better and better. You saw that potential in her freshman year, you saw that potential in her sophomore year, and she's going to have a good senior year next year, too. They've done a good job with her development."
