Lynx Coach Suzie McConnell Serio
"Every victory is important. This team is finding ways to win, and gets lots of contributions from everyone on the team. The players are there for each other... We got off to a good start. In the locker room, we talked about controlling this game from the beginning to the end. We're taking it one game at a time. We can't get complacent after this win."

"Katie handled the ball very well for us tonight. When she gets in the rhythm, everyone feeds off of her."

Lynx Guard Katie Smith
"Everyone came out ready to play tonight. Everyone was focused. You have to bring it individually and as a team, and we did that tonight. By me getting it going, I'm able to set up plays for someone. We're doing the little things to get the job done."

"We need to stay hungry and execute. We need to be ready every night. It's tough in this league. We could easily lose five in a row."

Sun Coach Mike Thibault
"I've never seen us play a worse offensive game. I thought we were bad in Houston, but that was just for one half. Katie Smith outscored four of our starters by herself."

"We talked about this before the game, and I've seen this before. You assume that just because you're home, and have a crowd getting behind you, it's going to carry you over the top against a team you played a close game against. It doesn't work that way. I've said this before, but there is not a lot of rocket science in basketball. It's putting the ball in a little hoop."
"That team is going to be heard from in the playoffs. They have what they didn't have last year, good length."
