Missouri Quotes

Head Coach Cindy Stein

Opening Statement ...

“I think Kansas State showed why they are playing for a Big 12 Championship. We battled to a 12-point game with seven or eight minutes left. I think we battled to that point and then the wheels kind of fell off. I thought we did a good job of battling to that point. You have got to have a lot of depth coming in, and (be) doing a lot of good things. That is something that we have struggled with, so we continue to work on those things, but hats off to K-State. They are playing really well. They play extremely well together; their chemistry is outstanding out there on the floor. They got kids that can hit some shots.”

 

On defending Kimberly Dietz...

“(Kimberly) Dietz (can hit) from so deep of a range, and you have somebody flying at her. You have to give her credit for making those kind of shots.”

 

Junior Guard Alyssa Hollins

On the upcoming games...

 “We just want to continue to get better. We didn’t do a lot of things right tonight, rebounding being one of them. We definitely want to get better on the boards and getting stops. Knowing the scouting reports, even though (Kimberly) Dietz was knocking them down from half-court, we knew she was capable of doing that, so we had to be able to guard it. We are just trying to get better on the defensive end, and keep working on offense.”
