Postgame Quotes

UC head coach Jamelle Elliott

On the team’s defensive performance and forcing 20 turnovers:

“To start the game we had to shuffle the lineup and started Bianca (Quisenberry) at the point guard as a freshman. She came out and she played 31 minutes and she played some really good basketball. She didn’t shoot the ball particularly well but she led our team on the offensive end. At the end of the day I can’t say enough about our defense. All year long our defense has held our opponent at least double figures under their average and without Dayeesha's (Hollins) 13 points a game we were able to score 47 points. I just have to believe our offense is coming and that our defense is going to continue to be stingy.”

On the teams balanced scoring:

“Alyesha Lovett along with Kayla Cook have kind of been our iron women all year long. You know she (Lovett) is going to bring it defensively and she knows every game she is going to guard the team’s best player and she does and unbelievable job at it. Now we’re asking her to shoot the ball and I thought she set the tone offensively by knocking down those three’s in the first half while maintaining her defensive energy. I can’t say enough about her being on the floor and how calm the team is when is she is out there as a young team. Inserting Bianca to the starting lineup leaves Jeanise (Randolph) and Kayla as seniors so our young guys are going to get a lot of experience for the rest of the year.”    

On if she saw a big difference in the way the team performed in the second half compared to other games:


 

 

“Well it was a huge emphasis in our locker room at half time. Last time we played against Temple and went into the half up nine and got out scored by 20 points in the second half. So it was something that we definitely talked about in the locker room and made sure it was on their radar and we were able to outscore them by five in the second half.”

On what she expects against SMU:

“We matched up well against SMU the first time out and that was without Dayeesha (Hollins) and Alexis (Durley) in the lineup. I’m just waiting for us to have one of these bust-out offensive games like we did against Akron and some of the teams we played early on. It’s in us I’m just waiting for it to come out and I think it will.”

#12 Jr. Alyesha Lovett G

On the key to her having a good game:

“We moved the ball inside and my teammates passed me the ball out and I was open so I took the shot. They’re shots that I practice everyday in practice so it felt good to see the ball go in the basket.”

On keys to playing well in the second half:

“We played good defense, didn’t foul, and rebounded well. We know we have to rebound well in order to win because in our last game we didn’t rebound so we wanted to make sure we came out tonight and rebounded well which helped us pull away in the second half.”

On if the team is due for a breakout scoring game:

“I definitely think so. We need to get the ball inside because it helps us get open shots and opens up our drive and kick game.”
