Recap?|? Final Stats?|? Notes

Arkansas Head Coach Susie Gardner

“We played on of our better first halves this year. It was a tough game, I thought we fought very hard. “

“(Shemeka) has got to step up and play and she did that. Shemeka creates her on shot sometimes, but I also set plays for her as well.”

“I really was concerned after the Ole Miss game, but we played with emotion and fire; I am very proud of that.”

Shameka Christon, F, Arkansas

“We do not need to get of to a bad start and we did not do that.”

“Coach Gardner has built my confidence. She say only I can stop myself.”

Katrina Nesby, P, Arkansas

“If you go after each other, the lose balls will come.”

“Shemeka (Christon) know her game and abilities. I did not see a difference in her game today.

South Carolina Head Coach Susan Walvius
“Confidence is a powerful thing, this is a game of speed and were not playing with a whole lot of confidence right now. I’m really pleased with what our young players are doing. Need our leadership to step up and lead this team. Our team is capable of scoring. This is the worst game I’ve seen a South Carolina team ply I a long time.”

“You execute in practice. We look better in practice then we do here. Not overly pleased with our defensive job today.”

“I feel bad for our fans. I feel like we have let them down and we are not winning enough. The issues we have are fixable.”

Cristina Ciocan, G, South Carolina

On guarding Shameka Christon
“Our game plan was meant to deny the ball from her. We played a four-and-one and I was in man to keep the ball out of her hands. She was able to jump over me.”

“We didn’t execute at all that got us in the first 10 minutes. We are a pretty togh team. We lost, but we prepare for each game and we work hard too.”
