Postgame Quotes/Notes - Storm 75, Indiana 64
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, couldn’t match up to her. We tried switching, we tried everything and then we tried to exploit her down on the block. We didn’t 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 we’ll call this a victory.
On the Fever's mindset:
We’re looking forward to the season getting started, but more than anything we’re 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 won’t be back for awhile so we just can’t worry about it. But it’ll be nice to get some of our prime-timers back.
On Catchings' return:
We don’t really know. We know she’s going to miss some games. Is it going to be three? Is it going to be five? Is it going to be eight? We don’t really know. All we know is that she’s on schedule, she’s doing a great job and we just don’t want her to do anything too quick and have a setback. She’s right on schedule.
