Sept. 12, 2013 - Santa Clara vs. K-State Post-Match Quotes



Sept. 12, 2013

Recap |  Box Score

Head Coach Suzie Fritz

On improving in getting more kills...

"I am not sure if it is correctable between today and tomorrow. There's a lot that goes into being a terminal team. The way you ball handle, the better chance you have. The better second contact, the better position you put yourself in. There's a great deal that goes into being a terminal attacking team, but there's no question we got to find more kills."


On Santa Clara’s offense…

"I didn't think we played well, and I didn't think we played well in the Tulsa match; we just got away with it [on Tuesday]. Santa Clara is a very high octane offense, and to play with them, you have to match what they do, which we simply did not do. We didn't manage their speed very well."


On the second match in a row with a slow start…

"I don't think anybody goes into the match thinking, 'We want to start slowly.' Volleyball is such a game of momentum, that if you don't get enough momentum shifts in there, then it is tough. It feels like it is getting away from you. [Santa Clara] started by firing on all cylinders, and it took us a game-and-a-half to get going. It just seemed things were developing faster than we were ready to handle them."


On some positives to build upon going into Friday…

"One, we are capable of playing significantly better. We stayed low error. Although we were not terminal and able to find enough kills, we didn't hurt ourselves. We didn't make a bunch of attack errors, receiving errors and service errors. That is going to be a mark of this team. We are going to make you beat us, but we are not going to hurt ourselves. We have to find more kills on our side."
