Lynx Coach Suzie McConnell Serio
"We didn't get out to a very good start. We played from behind for most of the game. We came out in the second half and made a great run we cut it to within three, and we did that with our defense. We just couldn't capitalize on it."

"We didn't do a good job on the boards. We didn't shoot the ball well. They played great defense and they took us out of our rhythm. They were a team struggling. They came out ready to play, and we didn't match their intensity."

"Margo Dydek has done a great job against us. She's been the difference maker, but we are our biggest opponent. We hurt ourselves lots of times like when you have 16 turnovers, that hurts. That's been a thorn in our sides. We're young and inexperienced together, and we just need to keep building and stay confident."

Lynx Guard Katie Smith
"We dug ourselves into a hole tonight. We tried to fight out of it in the second half and got it close, but it's harder fighting back. They just wanted it more than us. They are an aggressive team. They rebounded the ball better than us."

"I think we could have controlled the ball better and not make those simple mistakes. They came out and played hard and made us turn the ball over. But we contributed to the loss as well it was a joint effort."

"We just need to get back out there. There's no rest for the wicked. We have another game on Sunday. There is also pride you don't want to go out there and lose anymore. We've lost two straight; now we go back home. We need to put out the effort so we can feel good about what we do."

Silver Stars Coach Dee Brown
"We found out that it doesn't matter who scores, rebounds or passes the ball it's a team effort. It was a different attitude on the court tonight. We played unselfish and with a 'whatever we have to do to get the win' attitude. Tonight all our better players stepped up. When we can do that, we're a tough team to beat."
