Head Coach Don Flanagan
Comments on free throw shooting:

"Evidently, we haven't worked enough on free-throw shooting. You know what we haven't worked enough on is pressure free-throw shooting. You know its contagious when somebody misses then it seems like everybody is ready to miss...But we will do a better job. We have been shooting our free-throws pretty well up until this game, but we certainly could have increased that margin with better free-throw shooting."

Comments on the game:
"I though we did a nice job during the second half, our offense got better and we got the ball inside against them. I though our defensive effort was terrific. They are hard to defend you know. They run good stuff, make hard cuts, set good screens, they have people that can shoot the three and they have about four or five people inside who can bang the boards. It was a very physical game, that's what we expected. It was a PAC 10 opponent, that's what we wanted, and it's a good win for our program."

Comments on rebounding tonight against Oregon:
"They block out pretty well too... I thought Eileen (Weissmann) was consistently trying to get on the boards, Amanda Adamson was consistently trying to get on the boards. Eileen had four, Amanda had four, and Jessica had four. That's pretty good right there. We had 16 boards total and they had 14, they hit the boards pretty well too. We were not blocking for a period of time, that was something I was trying to get across to them."
