UT San Antonio Coach Quotes

 

Head Coach Rae Rippetoe-Blair

On the first half...

“I thought we really played well in the first half. We hit some shots, but they are a great ball club. There in the end we were only playing six to seven players because of injuries and we just let K-State get on a roll. They have great shooters with a great inside game and once they get going they are good. We tried to zone them and I think we did pretty good in the zone forcing them to take some tough shots but again we gave up 19 offensive rebounds. It is hard to beat anybody when you give up that many rebounds.”

 

On Shalee Lehning...

“She is just tremendous and we knew that coming into the game. We knew we were going to have to do some different things against her just to try to stay in the game. She is just a tremendous player.”

 

On K-State’s adjustments towards Monica Gibbs...

“I thought they did a lot of helping. The way we run our offense if they come and help then she is going to have to give it up. I felt at times she didn’t give it up when she should have. I thought she competed. Monica is one of those players that will never give up and I thought she competed all night.”

 

On returning home for three games...

“The first thing we are going to do is try to get healthy. That is the main thing that we have to do to get healthy. We need to work on executing. We are not executing well at all right now. Defensively we are actually playing pretty well. I thought we played well in this game defensively until the last eight minutes when K-State went on a run.
