Quotes by head coach Susan Judge---

?Overall I am pleased with the way we played, we keep making excusesabout our youth, but that was a good team. They have nationalrecognition, they've only lost to ranked opponents and I think that weare very talented and we showed that in certain parts of this match. Wejust need to clean it up and not have our ups and downs. In volleyballyou can do that up until game four, then you have to cut out themistakes and pass the ball.

?I'm really proud of how some of our players are playing. I think JamieBurke was back into the match tonight offensively. Melody Friehaufcontinues to be our go to girl. She is successful against any opponentwe have. We have to get her the ball more, but part of that problem wasour passing. We can't get her the ball if we don?t have the ball in theright place.

?I think that if we play like we did tonight at the good points , Ithink we can handle Evansville pretty well. The key for us is to beready to play. I don't want to put the girls in the match that aren'tready to play.

?It was a great crowd and a fun match to watch, so I hope people willcome back out to watch us. That's one great thing about being atWyoming is the support we have. Despite our loss tonight, I hope thatwe will continue to draw that kind of support.?
