Head Coach Joanne Boyle on her team's performance Sunday

It was really a much better effort. We only had seven turnovers. We did a much better job on the boards and a much better job blocking out. I think our energy was back. We really used it to force turnovers. It was really a different day.'

'I think that on Friday there was a lack of passion and energy that is part of our identity, our mission. Today, the focus was better and the energy and the passion were back, both on the floor and from the cheering on the bench.'

'I think we had some good ball movement today. We went away from playing triangle and went more four out, one in, which gives us a lot more freedom. It frees people from the double team and allows them to get to the basket. We ran about eight or nine minutes of that and I feel it was pretty effective.'

Junior Guard Alexis Gray-Lawson on how Sunday was different from Friday's game

'We just wanted to get Friday past us. We wanted to come out and have fun. We didn't have fun on Friday. Today we had a lot more fun.'

Senior Forward Ashley Walker on the adjustments from Friday to Sunday

'When the coaches yell at us, the team takes it, we go with it, and we adjust. What was good was we had a chance to play again quickly, to go back out there and get things right. Usually there is a longer time before you can go out there and try to do it right.'

'The biggest difference was our defense. Our defense today freed us up to be more patient on offense. The tenacity and fire on defense powered our offense today.'
