Recap

Ole Miss Head Coach Matt Insell

On the second half …
“We just kept to our process, they are playing a lot better basketball than they’ve been playing. They started 0-6 and they have a new coach, but he had a great game plan that stifled us a little bit and made us stand and watch. We talked at halftime about how we need to drive the basketball and get in the paint in the second half. We started getting paint touches for Tia and Kenyotta down on the block and great things happened when it when in there. It was all the girls, credit to them for settling down and continuing to play hard in the second half.  We’re getting there defensively, we’re not there but we’re getting better each day.”

On rebounding…
“We continue to get better on the boards, and that’s all effort. Danielle McCray once again seven points and nine rebounds and I’m asking her to score more. I tell her to be more aggressive, but she just crashes the boards, which is what I want her to do. Shequila Joseph got in there and got some big ones and kept some ball alive, which allowed Tia and Danielle to get some more. Kenyotta Jenkins with eight rebounds also tonight. Teams that win in this league rebound and we’re beginning to do that more consistently.”

On Tia Faleru ….
“Tia Faleru. She just keeps getting better and better. The next 30 days are very important for her as she continues to fine tune her skills. I’m tickled with how well she’s playing and Valencia McFarland continues to lead our basketball team.

On the Baylor game …
“I’m excited to play them. They have a great team and we’re going into a hostile environment but this is an incredible opportunity to see our growth that we’ve made as a basketball team, whatever the result is. We’re going down there with the mindset that we’re going to win. If it happens, it happens. We’re going to play with great effort and take advantage of the opportunity to get better as a team.”
