Utah-Arizona Postgame Quotes
Utah Head Coach Elaine Elliott
"The good news is that Morgan gets that fire and she doesn't want to lose and she's willing to take the game and try to get a W. We have to encourage that even though it leads to a few shots that are probably not the best. But it leads to an attitude, and you need to have an attitude."
"This is a great win and these are two very good wins for us. But this is a long season. This game was an example of that. I thought we lacked energy. Our kids have been sick and they just didn't come out as excited. I thought we had much better energy in the USC game. But the difference for us from the first of the season until now is that we wouldn't have turned it around before. Tonight we had much better energy toward the last six or seven minutes of the game."
Utah Sophomore Guard Morgan Warburton
"I did not want to lose this game. We came back and had a good attitude. We did key things tonight. I mean, we gave up some rebounds, but we had a lot more passion. I think our attitude has really turned things around. The first couple of games this season, I don't think we believed that we could win. Now we know we can."
Arizona Head Coach Joan Bonvicini
"It's a hard one to lose. We played hard, but we need to play smarter. We need to learn from mistakes and that's what the hardest part is. The majority of our turnovers tonight were from our post and they're better than this. We're at a breaking point in a our season right now, where we don't want to be an average team, we want to be a good team. But in order to be a good team, we've got to play with heart and with smarts. It's not a lack of talent, it's a lack of intelligence and, at times, working hard and making good decisions."
