Washington Head Coach June Daugherty
"It's a very exciting team victory for us. To go this deep into the tournament is awesome. We did it the way we've done it all year. That's blue-collar hard work. Our defense holding a great team to 67 points. To outrebound them like we did was the ball game. We've counted on what we've done all year. The Pac-10 conference play prepared us well for this tournament, especially a game like this with Oklahoma being so outstanding. "
