2004 State Farm Pac-10 TournamentOregon State vs. Arizona

Head Coach Joan Bonvicini:
'I knew this was going to be a tough game. Particularly early in the firsthalf, I thought Oregon State did a great job. Honestly, I think becausethey played yesterday, they had more of routine and they were playing withmore confidence. It is the first time we have been the two seed. To notknow who you are going to play, I think in a way it actually hurts you andyou give them an advantage early. Once we got our defensive settled downand really started playing with confidence, I thought Aimee (Grzyb) had agreat game with a career high six threes and it really opened things up.And for Polk to start dominating the inside, we utilized her not just toscore, but she is such a good passer and we can go inside and outside. Ithought we did a much better job rebounding in the second half. HollyeChapman had a great game, very very good game. They are very scrappy. I amproud of our team and it was great to get everyone in the line up.'
