Postgame Quotes/Notes - Storm 82, Tulsa 77

June 19, 2011

STORM HEAD COACH BRIAN AGLER:


On the game:
Basketball is a game where the offense complements the defense, and defense complements the offense. When you miss shots you are always in transition defensively and itís harder to get your defense set. And we have been in that place a lot this season. We are getting better and we are fortunate enough to stay healthy and get everyone on the same page. If we can get our defense set, I am confident we can still be a pretty good team this year.

STORM GUARD SUE BIRD:


On the game:
First half was not so great. The second was a lot better. We had a lot more energy and things were clicking for us. We were able to come back, take the lead, and once we got it, we did not want to give it up. Anyone on this team is capable of doing great things every night. For us, it was about playing our game, getting set defensively and taking what the other team gives us. It was such a team win.

STORM GUARD TANISHA WRIGHT:


On the game:
They came out ready for us and they really hit us in the first. But coming out of the locker room, we started to play a lot better and a lot more focused and were able to pull off the win.

TULSA HEAD COACH NOLAN RICHARDSON:
On the game:
That was a disappointing loss. We played so good in the first, I would say, 12 minutes of the ball game, but then we did not sustain the kind of basketball we have been trying to play. We knew they were going to make their runs. We thought we would be able to answer. And we did. But we missed our first few shots coming out into the second half and they kept us on our heels defensively the rest of the game.

TULSA FORWARD TIFFANY JACKSON:
On the game:
We came out of the locker flat for whatever reason. We canít start the third quarter like we did. We are a fighting team and we are used to coming back. We need to learn how to finish out and close games. Thatís something we have been struggling with.

TULSA FORWARD KAYLA PEDERSEN:
On the game:
We had a good first half. We typically have strong second halves. We jumped out and got a quick lead, and we were aggressive just like we are in practice. This shows a lot of potential, a lot of growth. We are right there. We just have to get over the hump, and figure out how to finish.
