Northwestern Head Coach Quotes

Northwestern Head Coach Joe McKeown

On establishing a post presence in the first half ...
"We thought that was one of our advantages against K-State. They (K-State) did a good job though. They really tried to double down to slow our post's game throughout the contest."

On the adjustments that K-State made against Amy Jaeschke...
"They switched it up a little bit by bring help from behind her. That forced her out a little bit, so then we were not able to get the ball real deep. We had to have the people that were open on the perimeter to make shots and if they do then it becomes easier."

On their full-court pressure...
"In the first half our press hurt them a little bit. In the second half I was worried about their shooter because they are so dangerous and in the press sometimes they can get open looks."

On switching from zone defense to man defense...
"I just did not want to give them looks. They have so many shooters and they are smart shooters. Sweat (Ashley) and Kincaid (Kari) are so smart and they know how to find each other when they need to."
