Stars Head Coach Dan Hughes

“We dug ourselves in a hole. I was pleased with how we came back. Catchings (Tamika) made some pivotal plays. That’s why she’s the player she is.”

Becky Hammon

“We dug ourselves into a hole. Hard to come back from on the road. We battled back a little too much, too late to overcome.”

Sophia Young

“We didn’t come out aggressive. You can’t expect to win when you don’t come out hard. We got down by 15 and the clock ran out on us. I have to get in the gym and work on my free throws. I’m taking personal responsibility to work on my free throws. If we would have had a better free throw percentage, we might have been in the game. We have to get ready for Connecticut. Indy is coming off of a loss and we have to get one of the two on the road.”

Fever Head Coach Lin Dunn

“When we win the boards, good things happen. We did a good job on Becky (Hammon) and Sophia (Young). Our defense is more effective as the game goes on because we are more aware of the opponent’s offense. The turnovers bothered me, but we played good defense to make up for them.”

Erin Phillips

“It was a good team effort. It was really disappointing against Chicago and I think it was a great way to respond to our loss. We had energy and a sense of urgency. Defense especially we had to pick up. Very disappointing against Chicago. We had a good practice in between Chicago and San Antonio. We got a lot of things back on track.”

Katie Douglas

“We know not to get too high or too low over a win or over a loss. We did a good job of organizing ourselves, more so our energy and our effort and our communication and just being active out there.”
