%^$%^$Ohio State coach Beth Burns
%^$”Without question, the difference in the game was that we were able to limit their shots. They came in averaging 76 points a game. Our goal was to hold them under 60. We knew it would take a lot of effort.%^$

%^$”You can see D’wan Shackleford’s heart extends beyond her sleeve. Hopefully, that becomes contagious.%^$

%^$”I think DiDi (Reynolds) really kept us in the game in the first half. I know she’s frustrated with her turnovers (nine). I just felt I couldn’t take her out. We got into some early foul trouble. I think DiDi and D’wan really did the things they needed to do. The bottom line is we stepped up and got a win.”%^$

%^$Junior forward D’wan Shackleford
%^$”We were able to put a lot of pressure on them with our press and that really shortened their shot clock. They couldn’t set their plays and we did a good job defensively.”%^$

%^$Junior forward DiDi Reynolds
%^$”I went to practice early Friday to shoot around because I didn’t shoot well (on Thursday against UC-Santa Barbara). Once you hit the first shot you forget about everything and my shots were falling in the first half.”%^$

%^$Senior guard Tomeka Brown
%^$(On another team injury)
%^$”You have to be positive because thinking negatively puts more pressure on the team. We have to each get better individually and then work together as a team.”
