Coach Flanagan on the overall game
"Obviously they had a disadvantage height wise but they had some quickness."
"I thought at times our defense broke down but we wanted to play a fast paced game. So we went out and played some pressure and created some opportunities. We shot 52% in the second half but of course a lot of those were off turnovers."
"I thought Tina Doughty was good at point guard and a lot of players played quality minutes. We just fouled too much. You can't put them on the free throw line that much. That was my only disappointment in the game. But it was a fun game for us. I don't know if we're ready for Texas Tech, but we understand we have to press and be intense on Friday."
UNM PLAYER QUOTES
What did you think of your first game in The Pit?
Doughty- "It was my first game, I mean it was really nerve racking but overall I think we played really good."
Can you talk about your performance tonight?
Torrance- "I'm a junior now, I just came out and relaxed. I crashed the boards and tried to rebound, that's one of the things I am working on. I think we played great as a team."
Doughty- "I think the main thing I need to do is set the play up. Now I just need to focus, get better shots."
Do you guys think you are ready for Texas Tech?
Torrance- "Of course, last year we went to Tech and we didn't play that well, so hopefully this year we can get some revenge on them. This year we just need to come out, set out our offense and just play basketball. Everything else will just flow."
