    On the game:
    I thought (Katie) Gearlds broke the game open there late in the second half with a couple of big, big threes. They took advantage and went small and our bigs, especially our 6-7 kid, couldnít match up to her. We tried switching, we tried everything and then we tried to exploit her down on the block. We didnít do a very good job making her have to defend. I thought that was the turning point - it was close, close, close and then Gearlds hit a couple of threes and bam, they separate. Give her credit.

    On playing short-handed:
    Well, they had three starters and we had zero, so weíll call this a victory.

    On the Fever's mindset:
    Weíre looking forward to the season getting started, but more than anything weíre looking forward to getting our starting lineup back. Tully Bevilaqua will be there when we get back. Later on in the week (Katie) Douglas (will return). (Tamika) Catchings wonít be back for awhile so we just canít worry about it. But itíll be nice to get some of our prime-timers back.

    On Catchings' return:
    We donít really know. We know sheís going to miss some games. Is it going to be three? Is it going to be five? Is it going to be eight? We donít really know. All we know is that sheís on schedule, sheís doing a great job and we just donít want her to do anything too quick and have a setback. Sheís right on schedule.
