Sacred Heart vs. Central Connecticut Post Game Quotes
Head Coach Ed Swanson On team's performance in 73-61 win at CCSU - "Sometimes when you get out to such a fast start, it becomes a challenge to keep that consistency and stay focused. I thought we did a great job controlling tempo early but we started fouling and lost some of our focus."
On Kerri Burke's return - "I can't say enough about Kerri. Not only coming back from that kind of injury (ACL knee) but we might not have won today without her on the court. Not many athletes can do what she has been able to do and overcome this year. She is our leader out there and we are different team when she is on the court."
Senior guard Amanda Pape On today's game - "I thought we had a great start but we made too many stupid mistakes. We have a lot of stuff to work on going forward."
On the return of fellow captain Kerri Burke - "I am really happy for her. She has had to battle injuries all year and to see her fight back from this knee injury is something. It's great to have her back out there."
Senior point guard Kerri Burke On coming back from an ACL tear in her knee in just six games - "It felt great. I was a little nervous before the game but when we got out on the court I just put it out of my mind. It's been tough. I had three years without any kind of injury and then this year, my senior season, I've had to battle back from two separate injuries. But I just wanted to get back, that is all I have been focused on."
On today's win - "I thought we had a great start but we let up a bit. There was definitely some good and some bad but we got the win, that's all that matters."
