Jim Foster, Ohio State head coach
On the game
“I think this team has gotten a lot better on defense. We were much more aggressive from the start. I think we really kept them out of a flow.”

On the game
“We made a lot of plays today off very good decisions. I think we did a good job of pushing the tempo and really filling lanes.”

On the game
“Sometimes what you do in practice will break out in a game. I think that was obvious today they way we ran the break.”

Jessica Davenport, senior center
On her 1,000th rebound
“It is a nice accomplishment but I more excited about the win. When they were trying to get me to stand up I didn’t want to because I’m a little shy but it is nice to know that the fans appreciate what my teammates and I have done.”

Brandie Hoskins, senior guard
On the game
“It was a great effort today. We had really good communications. Our goal is to get better everyday in practice and in games and I think we really showed our improvement today.”

Maria Moeller, freshman guard
On the game
“On defense we really did a good job of pressuring the ball. That led to easy buckets in transition and with our posts getting out and running it made us hard to stop.”

Lisa Bluder, Iowa head coach
On Ohio State
“We came out deflated in the second half and Ohio State played very well. They capitalized on our turnovers because we didn’t take care of the ball.”

On Jessica Davenport
“There’s not many people in America that are Jessica Davenport’s physical equal. Setting these types of records, she should go down as one of the best in the league.”
