Ohio State Head Coach Beth Burns
“I think both programs, off the court, have been through a lot of situations with regard to injuries.

“I felt at halftime we were feeling sorry for ourselves and were facing our seasonal moment of truth.

“I can’t say enough about the play of our front line – D’wan (Shackleford) grabbing 17 rebounds and Courtney (Coleman) with 19 points – they just didn’t want to lose.”
