  • Shock Head Coach Bill Laimbeer

    On tonight's game:
    “We got hosed at the free throw line. The double standard continues in refereeing the game.”

    Shock Guard Deanna Nolan

    On turnovers:
    “Coach addressed us on turnovers. We had 24 for the game. Even so, we were still in the game there at the end. They got some key offensive rebounds and second shots. If we had those possessions, we would have had the chance to score, tie, or take the lead. We play hard enough to win. If we just cut down on our turnovers, we’ll have a better opportunity to win. We play them again Sunday. If we play with intensity, we’ll get the win.”

    Fever Coach Brian Winters

    On tonight's game:
    “Detroit has a very good team. They are physical and they are strong. Seems like every game we play with them comes down to the wire. Wish we could have made more free throws at the end.”

    On Tamika Catchings:
    “Tremendous rebounder. She has good instincts to go get the ball. No matter what size a player is, with good instincts she can get the ball.”

    On comparing last year’s team with this year’s team:
    “Obviously, we have a different team this year. Kelly (Miller) has another year under her belt. Tully (Bevilaqua) provides us with at spark. Tan (White) was a very good draft pick for us. Ebony (Hoffman) does a great job off the bench.”

    Fever Forward Tamika Catchings

    On today's win:
    “It was a great team win. By getting into the bonus early, we were able to hit free throws and that helped us down the stretch. We played good team defense. That helped us because our outside shooting was off , tonight.”

    Fever Guard Ebony Hoffman

    On tonight's game:
    “What can I say, another team win. We don’t want to relax and we want to stay hungry.”
