Head Coach Joye Lee-McNelis Quotes
"We were very fortunate to win tonight. UAB presented a lot of challenges for us. They are a very good basketball team, very well-coached team. They did a great job. Again, we are very fortunate to get out of her with a win."
"We have to give a tremendous amount of credit to our fans, our band and cheerleaders because they gave us the momentum we needed to under the two minutes to get that win."
"We came out in the second half and we were flat. We were not energized. We were slow moving even in our offenses. We didn't have any energy, but the crowd gave us some energy."
"How did we win? We got defensive stops in crunch time; we forced turnovers and got layups going the other way. That's exactly how we were able to win."
"The positive thing is that we had a balanced attack tonight. We had five players in double figure scoring. We have emphasized to our players that we have to finish strong."
