Recap |  Box Score |  Notes

Ohio State head coach Jim Foster
On Boston College forcing overtime
“Dorsey made great shots and I thought we got a bit tentative and Dorsey is a confident shooter who made some great shots. The thing that’s encouraging is that we found a way to win tonight, and we can build on that. We found things out tonight that we couldn’t if we play a team we’ll beat by 40.”

On Ohio State’s bench play
“If you look at the box score, you’ll notice that everyone who played scored. Our bench was the difference maker in this game.”

On Ohio State’s play in the second overtime

“I had to be intense and go after it. I saw it and I took it. I had to really concentrate on making my free throw.”

Visitor quotes
Coach Cathy Inglese
On Boston College
“I can’t be happier with are kids. They played with their hearts and desire. Forget the X’s and O’s, we need to work on. They didn’t give up and never felt the game was over. They were here to win. Playing with their hearts and with desire was the biggest thrill.”

On tonight’s game
“Yes, it’s positive. Our team still needs to find itself. I knew that we would learn something. We’re going to be a team that gets better as the season goes on. Our young players are playing well with our veterans.”

Kindyll Dorsey, senior guard
On Ohio State guard Marscilla Packer
“We played against her two times last year and in the first game she made five three pointers. I made it a point tonight not to let her do that. Everybody on the team did a good job on her. Like Kathrin (Ress) said it’s are game plan. We never go into a game thinking that we can’t win. The coaches do a great job with this.”

Kathrin Ress, senior forward
On guarding Packer
“The coaches do a nice job on preparing us. They told us to be preventative and not let her get to her spot where she wants to shoot. She’s a lefty so we just had to close the left shot and keep her out of the paint. Coaches did a great job with this.”
