Washington Womens Basketball Player Quotes Jaime Redd (on playing last game against Chris Gobrecht): Its probably rewarding for hershe doesnt have to see us anymore (Jamie says jokingly). Actually, it will be a lot easier for her to come here and play Washington now that the people she was coaching will be gone.
Megan Franza (on contributions from the bench): We talk about this all the time. She (coach Daugherty) asks us everyday at practice and we talk about it within our team, about how people need to be ready to play coming off the bench. That was one thing we said about our last game when we lost to Cal, we werent ready to play. I think everyone came out with fire in their eyes tonight.
(on feelings about tonights game after the loss to CAL): For me, I couldnt wait to get back on the basketball court. After a disappointment like that, it tears your heart out but its nice to be able to come back in one week and play again. Tonight showed us that we still know how to play and its not the end of the world. (on postseason play): If the NIT is an opportunity for us, I want to play. Any kind of post-season play that we can get into, I want to play. Ill goes as far as we can and in any option that we get. If we have the opportunity to go to the NIT, then my goal is to win the NIT.I would like to make it into the NCAA tournament too, but any way to play is what I want to do and I think the team feels the same way.
