“You hope it doesn’t have to come to that. If we come out from the start and not two-thirds into the first half it should be a different story, but we have confidence in our team. Right now we’re not over confident, but I would have expected us to come out with more intensity than we did.
"They (San Antonio) came out very deliberate tonight. They played to their strengths, and I feel bad for Dan but that’s the nature of the beast. Unfortunately, someone had to lose this game tonight.
"I think that we will need to finish at least 4-2 to be assured of a playoff spot.”
Shock Center Ruth Riley
"Well it’s a long game, so we just needed to stay close until we started getting shots to fall. We played the last 30 minutes really well and put ourselves in a position to be able to win. Once Katie’s shot went up, it was just a matter of being in the right spot at the right time. We just have to keep it up.”
On season-high scoring:
Silver Stars Head Coach Dan Hughes
“I’m pleased with the way we competed in the basketball game. We were down late and they battled back to make a play. On offense we affected their shot, but we couldn’t follow up and get the rebound. It’s a tough loss to take. It was one of our best games in terms of effort. We’ve grown on both ends of the court. We overcame adversity, we just didn’t find a way to rebound.”
When asked if this game summed up the season:
Silver Stars Guard Marie Ferdinand
“It’s tough. We played a great game overall. It’s a heartbreaker. It hurts. We played our best game. We gave Detroit everything we had. It’s tough to swallow. We played 40 minutes of basketball. It’s hard to not finish when you play as hard as we did.”
