Ohio State Coach Beth Burns
“You have to tip your cap to Indiana. A lot of strategic answers could be given but the bottom line is: Bigger, stronger, tougher.

“They played with great focus and intensity for 40 minutes and really disrupted our offense a great deal. I thought their full-court man defense was terrific, just as physical a team as we’ve faced all year long. We didn’t match that physical challenge. The tougher team in red tonight was the Hoosiers.”
