Ohio State Head Coach Beth Burns
“I am just so pleased and proud of this team. We really felt that we turned the corner last weekend and played great, focused basketball and I think that tonight you saw it against a good and incredibly athletic Virginia team.

“We talked so much about our approach to the game. Our game plan was the reason we were able to hold out. You have to believe.

“DiDi likes to make big shots. She has her entire career. Her two buzzer-beaters are going to go in the books. But you don’t get those kinds of shots without great screens and our post players did that tonight in addition to some great rebounding.”

On DiDi Reynolds’ performance – Career-high 26 points
“DiDi makes big shots. She has had many big shots to win many games. She is incredibly accurate when her feet are set and just has that mentality that she does not get nervous.
