Sacred Heart vs. Providence Post Game Quotes
Head Coach Ed Swanson
"Amanda just played tonight. You can see she didn't think about, she did everything in rhythm and just played. The teamed seemed in rhythm and so did she. Right from the beginning of the game, I could tell. She hit her first two shots and she was off flying everywhere from there."
"Providence is off to a great start this season and have three tough perimeter players that we were concerned about coming in. They got to us a bit with some pressure in the second half and I just didn't feel comfortable at all until that horn sounded. This was a great win for us."
"We had two great days of practice heading into tonight's game and I really stressed to the team that there is no difference in how hard we practice and how hard we should play."
Senior Amanda Pape
"I know I speak for everyone in saying that no one has been happy with the way we have been playing. We had a lot to prove tonight and we got it done. We had two great practices coming in, we worked hard and that helped us tonight."
"With Kerri (Burke) and Mary (Rush) out, we need players to step up and contribute and they have. Khalia (Cain) has stepped up and look at Katie Brown who came in and buried a huge three for us in the second half."
"Kaitlin (Sowinski) has made us extremely deep in the post. She and Jasmine are two of the best in the league. They do a great job of opening up the game for the rest of us. It makes us a different team."
Sophomore Kaitlin Sowinski
"Tonight was the first time this season it was like having the old Amanda out there. Not sure what it was for us in the early going, chemistry, communication, I don't know. But we came in tonight, all of us, so sick of losing that we wanted to just come out and take it to them."
Senior Kerri Burke
"It's been tough to watch from the sidelines. But tonight was a great game, great to see smiles on everyone's faces. A great win but I am eager to get back on the court next week."
"Khalia has done a great job. She makes me feel that I can make sure I am 100% healthy before trying to get back in there."
