Quotes from head coach Cindy Fisher

"We didn't get a good flow going throughout this game. But Colorado dida good job on us. They stepped up their defense, that's something CoachBerry obviously takes pride in, which shut us down. We got a lot ofshots off tonight, but as a team that had 79 shots on the night, we justcouldn't execute and make the shots. We were only 31% from the floor,the worst we have been all year, but with that many shots it's somethingwe really need to look at, and take pride in that especially against aquality team, we just have to be able to put the shots down."
