Quotes from head coach Anne Moore ---

?They came out for the first time really ready to play, which was a positive. But, we have a tendency to play to our competitions level, instead of staying on stop and continuing to dominate, we have spells where we think 'Oh, this girl is not as fast, so I can slow down a little bit'.

?We tend to shift to the level of our competition. For example, with Arizona State, we stepped up to their level, even though they were technically and physically faster and better, we stepped up our game and played on their level. We tend to go with what ever the other team throws at us, which is what we talked about at half time.

?We started off so strong and then we went back to how we have played in the past. You see sparks of such good play, and then they get up and they are getting on a roll and then to let that down is frustrating.?
