Quotes from head coach Anne Moore ----

?I thought we played much better today than the first half of the lastgame. We are starting to connect passes and we know each other better,as far as who's making what run. We are just starting to click a littlebetter than we have in the past. Also in the final third we createdopportunities and actually finished them, which was nice.

?It was good for them to get this win under their belt, going into sometough games coming up.?

?We play Arizona State, who are very very tough, and Arizona is aswell. It's going to be an adjustment for us just because of the heat,where we are used to the cooler weather. Hopefully, we can just playthe game that we play and play like we did today, and then we should befine.?
