Ole Miss Head Coach Matt Insell

On the game…
“What a great win for our basketball program and for our kids.  I told our kids we're playing as good as any team, we have to keep fighting till the final buzzer. As you saw tonight, this team did not give up.  Had plenty of chances to give up when things weren't going our way.  They kept fighting and kept fighting.  I got so much respect for our players.  I'm proud of them. We're going to enjoy this tonight.  We beat a very good Arkansas basketball team and found a way to win at the end.”

 On what the win means to the program…
“This is a huge win.  Ole Miss basketball, that's why I say 'remodeling,' it's one of the most storied programs in women's college basketball.  I didn't look at it as rebuilding, I looked at it as a process of getting us back to the top. A win like this helps you get there.  You beat Auburn on Sunday, you come back beat Arkansas on Wednesday.  Every time you get a chance to take the floor and you continue to work hard, we're not only working hard for ourselves and our teammates, we're working hard for the alumni.  We had several of them here today.  Made me proud in to get a win in front of Peggy, Carol, Jennifer was here also.  That's what paved the way for all of us to be here.  We're working hard every single day to live up to their expectations.  Where they want this program to be.  We're going to get there.  We're going to get there”

 On Tia Faleru
“She's an all-conference player.  She's one of those explosive players in this league.  She battled all night.  She had to play 39 minutes coming off of a concussion.  If the doctors would have allowed her, she would have played Sunday.  She's a warrior.  8-10 from the field.  I'm proud of her.  When you look at that, she was 1-15 at Arkansas.  She did not play well at Arkansas.  She struggled.  She knew she struggled.  She wanted to come in here and show Arkansas that she wouldn't go 1-14.  She did it, 8-10.  Battled all night long.  I'm proud of Tia.  I'm proud of all these girls.  I'm proud of my whole team”

Senior Forward Kenyotta Jenkins
On the last offensive possession …

“Well, we missed a shot.  Arkansas got the rebound.  In the huddle coach drew up a play.  If they miss, somehow we have to get a stop.  When the shot went up, Diara got it going out of bounds, when I saw it there was still time on the clock and I thought, Thank God.  Put it up on the perimeter and it was going in.”

Senior Point Guard Valencia McFarland
On the win …

“We weren't ready to go home yet.  We want to continue playing.  We're not done yet.”
