NCAA Second Round Press Conference Quotes

NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Championship
Head Coach June Daugherty
We have to stay focused on playing our system and playing great Huskey basketball. I think we're capable of doing that. It's been a game of runs all year with our program. It is a team that buckles down, stays disciplined defensively and takes care of the basketball against the different pressure schemes we're going to see from them. They're going to mix it up, I think. If we can do that, I think we'll be fine. You have to be careful at this point in the season not to get too far outside yourself. We must stick with what got us here and do it with a little bit higher level than we did yesterday. That's going to be important.
Sophomore Guard Emily Florence
I like the open space (of Memorial Gym). It gives us room to dive for balls out of bounds. With the benches on the baseline, you get a different perspective of the game. It's something I'm not used to, but I really like it.
It all comes down to working hard. We outwork a lot of teams and that's when we get our "Ws." We've just got to come out and play 40 minutes. With LSU, you can't give up at all. You can't let down at all.
Sophomore Guard Dominique Banks
Junior Guard Cameo Hicks
A neutral court definitely helps us. We are just going to have to build our own energy. The team that can build the most energy and feed off the energy is going to be the winner of this game.
