Utah Head Coach Elaine Elliott
On the game: "It was really a great game. It could have been anybody's game at anytime. It went all the way down to the last play, and somebody wins and somebody loses."
On the upset: Nobody knows what they're talking about at the start of the year. Predictions and assumptions are made solely on who's coming back for what team with what experience. We all know that there's so much more that's put into a team every year, so there is absolutely no way of knowing what a team's sort of character will be, what the differences of leadership from year to year will be. So there are never any surprises in this game, I don't care who you pick first, I don't care who you pick last."
Utah Senior Forward Kim Smith
On the loss: "It was a tough way to lose. But all it's going to do is make us hungry, so we'll get something out of it. It's a frustrating start (to the conference season), but at the same time I know we're gonna turn it around now."
