Post game quotes: Cal at Washington, Feb. 14, 2010

Head coach Joanne Boyle
'I'm happy to get a win. You go on the road and we had to leave Brenna Heater back at home with a concussion, so were down a big body. I knew we had to press them and play uptempo as much as we could because we wouldn't be able to handle their posts one on one down on the block. I thought the kids did a good job having to press the entire games. There three at the end, that could have been a momentum changer, but we withstood that in overtime.'
'Alexis (Gray-Lawson) is a big-time player. She shows up when we need her in big games. Tonight was one of those nights when we weren't getting points in other ways and she really reads that and just sort of takes over games.'

'I have had some games where I have been slipping up a little bit and my teammates told me to get back into it, so I have just tried to pic it up this weekend. I tried to read and change a little more. I knew everyone was trying to trap me, so I was trying to get rid of the ball and do things like rebounding and getting steals. Just trying to help them out.'

'I am in pain. The one thing I learned from my teammates is if it were them, they would come back on the floor, so I tried to do the same things for them. We have a day off tomorrow and some time before the next game so we'll just fix it and get back to work.'
