PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Terri Mitchell "If you eliminate the first four minutes of each half I think it would have been a different game. You can't expect to beat a team like this, a team with so much tradition and history on their home court, and play the way we did in the first four minutes of each half. We gave them too much momentum early in the second half. We let them get in a rhythm."
"Vivian is known for her defense, and that is why they are the winners (of this game) and we are the losers. They shot very well and we didn't. I loved the fight in our players to not back down."
On Essence Carson: "We were not doing a good job of contesting her shot. She plays with a lot of confidence. She is a great player."
On Marquette's shooting:
"It was a combination of good looks and hurried looks. But neither fell. In the second half we shot better. You have to know the character of our team to know we would shoot better in the second half."
