Sacred Heart vs. Binghamton Post Game Quotes:
Sacred Heart Head Coach
"Their (Binghamton) energy on the offensive glass really set the tone in the second half. They really knocked us back on our heels. They are obviously bigger than us across the board, and that was a concern coming in seeing as they were #1 in America East last season in rebounding margin. That energy they brought really effected us in the second half."
"Our offense is fueled by how well we can rebound on the defensive end. They were able to get Jasmine (Walker) in foul trouble early and in the second half and that was a big factor for us. She is a key to getting us out of the defensive end and out in transition."
"Our full court pressure isn't what it should be yet, it's only the second game, but that is key to what we want to do. We want to force teams to wind down the shot clock, force quick shots, rebound and get out in transition."
"In the end, we were fortunate to hang on. We made just enough plays down the stretch to win it."
Binghamton Head Coach
"The second half was much, much better than the first half. We just decided that we were not going to play like we did in the first half on our home court and I was really happy with how we played coming back in the second half like we did."
"Laine (Kurpniece) and Laura (Franceski) really sparked us in the second half to get the ball where we wanted it and run our plays...and get the offense going."
