Post Game Quotes
Southern Miss 80, North Texas 77
March 6, 2014
Head Coach Joye Lee-McNelis
"We did not play well in the first half. We got in foul trouble early. That was the challenge we had in the first because of our foul trouble. Then we couldn't make a shot. You have to give a lot of credit to North Texas. They were very good. They packed it in there."
"Again, we were relying on some shots that maybe we shouldn't take. Defensively they had the momentum."
"We come out the second half and pick up some momentum and we make some shots. Then Tamara just came alive. She hit some big shots for us. She hit three big threes to swing the momentum. We had to jump into our full court defense to continue to close that gap. They turned it over and we were able to get some things going."
"I thought our defense gave us energy to finish this game. We also were able to hit our free throws down the stretch."
