Sacred Heart vs. Central Connecticut State Post Game Quotes
Head coach Ed Swanson
On today's 77-49 victory: "This win was a good bounce back and I'm proud of our aggressiveness. We controlled the defensive glass and when you do that, you're allowed to make mistakes. But, turnovers still are our bugaboo like they've been all season."
On holding Gabriella Guegbelet to just eight points on 3-of-14 shooting: "We didn't want her to have a double-double because she has the ability to take over a game. We knew she would get her points, but if she had double digit rebounds, we'd be in trouble. Our defensive intensity to the out of the game."
On the Pioneers' 31-4 first half run: "We ran the ball better during that spurt and Amanda really got us going. Our zone defense also caused a lot of problems for them. Tempo is such a big part of our game and we controlled that today."
Senior forward Jasmine Walker
On bouncing back from a tough home loss: "We worked hard in practice and we played well. We knew we were better than how we played and we showed that today. Actions speak louder than words."
Senior guard Amanda Pape
On the team's turnover problems: "We try to work hard on them in practice, but it's good were turning the ball over now because when crunch time comes we'll know how to control it."
