Post Game Quotes: 18/20 Marquette 82, 23/24 DePaul 79
Jan. 6, 2007
Head Coach Terri Mitchell
"This was just an incredible college basketball game. It is always a battle with DePaul because they are such a tough team, play in such a awesome venue and always bring such intensity. We needed to stay focused and stay with the game plan. I think we did both tonight."
"This is a major win because this is how these games always end, very close. DePaul is incredibly coached so we knew we needed to be ready. They bring a very high octane offense. We wanted to score and stay with them. They are incredible shooters, especially at home."
"We learned last season in BIG EAST play that you need depth and be emotionally and physically tough to be successful. We used all 10 players and that is how we played all through the non-conference schedule. We didn't start well but we caught up."
"The tone of this season is set by our seniors who have invested a lot in this program over the past four years. We never look back, we always talk about the next game. That is the formula that has worked well for us this season. We are forward thinkers and no matter what we look to the next game."
