HEAD COACH MUGGSY BOGUES SAYS...
(On the game) We didn't come out with the right intensity for whatever reason. We didn't take care of the basketball when we opened the game with five or six turnovers. We let Detroit beat us in offensive rebounds and that is their strength.

(On changes he has seen since taking the head coaching job) We are trying to build for next year. We are trying to boost their morale, trying to get them to play my style of basketball, and they have been picking it up quickly. This is more of an evaluation for next year.

INSIDE THE STING LOCKER ROOM
TANGELA SMITH (25 Pts, 2 Blk, 7-13 FG)
(On the game) I felt that our intensity wasn't there in the beginning, and we waited too long to get back into it at the end of the game. I feel that we fought hard until the end, but we just couldn't get back into it.

INSIDE THE SHOCK LOCKER ROOM
KATIE SMITH (21 Pts, 3 Reb, 2 Stl)
(On starting the game) I feel comfortable coming off the bench and starting. I like the team, I like what Bill does and my teammates. It hasn't been a rough transition at all. I'm just trying to get my feet under me after traveling around for the last week.

(On winning games late in the season) We need to take care of business now, we're coming down to the home stretch. Every game is crucial for us. We had a lot of chances to win that game and basically wanted to come out and take it to them..
