STORM HEAD COACH BRIAN AGLER:
On his message to the team when Indiana led by 17 points:
Don't worry; just play well. We had a lot of people step up.

On whether he's proud of his team:
Yes. We have some veteran players and we're not going to let them back in the game.

On Katie Gearlds:
She's finally getting in the rotation and she's a good shooter. (Lauren) Jackson is gone, so she's going to have to step up.

GUARD SUE BIRD:
On the game:
We showed ourselves tonight as a team we can come back when down and we also learned a lot about ourselves tonight.

On Camille Little's performance:
Camille came in and gave great effort tonight. She's starting to get comfortable in her role. She realized it in the Sacramento game.

On the Storm's seven-game winning streak:
Each time we try to go out and play together as a team and even without LJ we've been able to play at a high level. A seven-game winning streak is something that we are proud of.

CENTER YOLANDA GRIFFITH:
On her rebounding:
We have a lot of capable scorers on our team, so I try to really concentrate on doing other things like rebounding. This gives us a second chance getting offensive rebounds, resets the 24 second clock and we wear a lot of teams down that way. We have a veteran team and we take pride in rebounding. Because we have experience, we leave it all on the floor.

INDIANA HEAD COACH LIN DUNN:
On the game:
I felt like our effort was high and we played hard. We needed more free throws. We went inside but didn't get to the line enough. It was difficult for our perimeter players to get shots because they switched constantly. We wanted to establish our inside game from the start.

On Tamika Catchings sitting out:
She was not cleared to play tonight, but she has been cleared to play tomorrow depending on how the swelling in her foot responds to the flight.

GUARD KATIE DOUGLAS:
On the game:
We got a good lead and found a way to fight off our slow start. Overall, we played well in the first half. We had low turnovers which usually equates to Ws. We missed free throws and had no second-chance rebounds. They killed us on rebounds, which is a big obstacle to overcome. I felt like we got a contribution sfrom everyone.

CENTER TAMMY SUTTON-BROWN:
On the game:
We had some really good moments, just a few too many breakdowns on defense. We played hard. The effort was there. We need to play through some of the things that happen on the floor.
