Postgame Quotes - UCLA vs. Arizona State
March 6, 2004
Head Coach Charli Turner Thorne:
'Obviously, we are very disappointed. You have to do two things to beat UCLAand to beat most teams and that is rebound and take care of the ball. Wejust didn't do those two things and that was pretty much the game.'
Comments on their chances to get into the tournament:
'I think we are a great team, but our last road trip was a bad road trip. Wejust have to think positive, get through some adversity, and I think it willmake us stronger as a team.'
Comments on the lack of scoring:
'All of UCLA's putbacks and second shots killed us. We let our offensereally affect our defense. The runs where we weren't scoring, we needed tohave better defense, because if we are not going to score, then they sure asheck can't. We weren't scoring and they were. Our defense really needed tostep it up.'
