Cincinnati vs. Georgetown
Postgame Quotes
February 4, 2012

Head coach Jamelle Elliott
Opening statement:

“Looks like the difference in the game was that we turned the ball over 24 times. They pressured us for 40 minutes. (Dayeesha Hollins) had nine turnovers which is uncharacteristic for her.  I thought she tried to split those traps a little too much instead of reversing the ball. But, the kid’s trying to make plays and you can’t be mad at her for that. On the flip side of that, on the No. 15 team in the country, we cut it to five one time, we cut it to four. We had a two-on-one fast break with Bjonee (Reaves) to be able to cut it to three. We had our chances. Everybody talks about hanging around with the No. 15 team in the country.  I can’t wait until we get to the point where not only do we hang around, but we make better decisions so that we can win these games. Georgetown probably didn’t come out and play their best basketball. And, when a team that’s ranked in the country doesn’t come out and play their best basketball and we’re still playing hard but we’re not upping our level, it’s still going to be hard to beat a bunch of teams. Today, we really didn’t up our level enough to give ourselves the best chance to beat a very good Georgetown team.”

On the gap between coming back and coming back to win:
“Just unforced turnovers, two on ones.  (Dayeesha ) throwing the ball. Things that when you’re trying to get somewhere that the other team you’re playing against is going you can’t make those types of mistakes. Again, we’re playing hard, trying to make plays, you can’t be too disappointed in our teams effort today. At the same time, when you get that close, you start to think about little small things that we could have done differently and how the outcome could have changed.”


 

 

On Georgetown’s press:
“We tried to simulate in practice, but the biggest problem is that our guards are so small. We have Bjonee at 5-6 and (Dayeesha) at 5-7. So it’s hard to really see over top of that. But, we want them to have the ball because they are our best ball handlers. It’s kind of a catch-22. If we put them in the backline, now you have Kayla Cook and Alyesha Lovett guys that aren’t as confident with the ball under pressure having to make the decision about where to make the pass. We were in a tough situation obviously they’re long, they’re athletic, so it was hard to see over it. We broke it pretty well for the most part. We’re not happy with 24 turnovers. We got good shots. We had our chances; bottom line. 24 turnovers or not, we had our chances in this game to really, really upset this team. But, like good teams do, they make big shots. They get fouled. They get to the free throw line. They make free throws. They come up with a steal and I wouldn’t expect anything less from them.”

Senior guard Bjonee Reaves
On the game:

“We knew coming into the game that they were going to be a very aggressive, physical team.  We knew they were going to trap all over the court.  We just have to do a better job of being poised and under control.  At times we showed it but the times we didn’t they capitalized on it, and that’s what good teams do.  We can’t make those types of mental mistakes because good teams capitalize them.”

On her thoughts on Georgetown:
“They are a good team, but they aren’t as physical as other teams that we have played.  They were the most aggressive trapping team that we have seen all year.  But it is a learning experience for us.  I think this game was really good for us especially because we have about 5 or 6 games left and a couple of the teams they press 2-1-2 and 1-2-2 and I think we will be well prepared for it.  You have to take the good with the bad and I think that is what we are going to take out of this game.”

Sophomore guard Dayeesha Hollins
On Georgetown’s trap and getting it through the middle of the court:

“In those situations I have to make the best decision and know where the open people are instead of rushing, and that’s something I have to work on.”

Sophomore forward Jeanise Randolph
On thoughts on the end of the season:

“Basically play like we played towards the end of the game, being poised and confident with the ball and making the right decisions.  We can’t turn the ball over at the beginning of the game or get into foul trouble at the beginning of the game.  We just have to be smart with the ball.”
