Quotes from Head Coach Cindy Fisher

?The game really came down to the last second. We fouled one of theirplayers at the end of the game, and fortunately her foot was on thethree-point line. She only shot two free throws, so that could havereally turned the game around. We had absolutely great play off thebench with Brianna Tischer and Ann McColl playing great defensively.Even though they had zero's across the stat sheet, they really shut downthe inside game for Weber State. Carrie Bacon had a good night with 24points and 12 boards, and Carly Stucky had a phenomenal night with 16points. We also out rebounded them 40-29, so that was a huge differencein the game. I think it was a really great team effort, and we learned alot tonight especially during crunch time.?
