Freshman Emily Autrey"We really felt like it was time we had a win on the road. But because it was Washington State, our cross-state rival, we probably had a little extra motivation too.
"Playing the three and the four (positions) gives me a chance to get outside more, instead of always posting up. It's nice to have that versatility.
"We knew we needed to step up our defense. We really put it all together tonight. We worked well together as a team.
"(Alke) Dietel is a really good player. We knew we had to box out and keep her off the boards."
Head coach June Daugherty"That was Husky Defense tonight. We've been getting better and better lately and it was nice to see it all come together. People were really flying around tonight. Emily Autrey had a tremendous game on both ends of the court. That's what we've been looking for. It's so pleasing to have four people in double figures, to play good defense and to come out with the win.
"We showed great maturity on the road tonight."
"Each game is the same to me, whether it's on the road or at home. We don't think about it being a road game. We just think about it being Washington State and we have to play a good game. Things fell for us tonight, people got hot and we came away with the win."
