Ohio State Coach Beth Burns
Opening Statement
“I can’t say enough about the toughest group of human beings I’ve ever been around. No matter what comes our way, we’ve had a lot of different things occur, but every day we’ve had a good practice, every day we’ve had smiles and good energy, every day we’ve been able to find the positive.

“I think our toughness and our character and our heart, was the difference today. We played a wonderful floor game as errorless as we can play. I thought everyone was in a really good flow offensively and defensively. I felt pretty good with as close as it was knowing that other than D’wan Shackleford (foul trouble) we could pretty much play straight up through the second half.”
