Recap | Box Score | Notes

USC Head Coach Susan Walvius

“Defensive rebounding was our focus, and we really want to get back to being able to defend. We knew Florida was a team, coming in, that did a great job attacking the rim. Our defense created a lot of offense in the second half. I thought Iva had a really good first half, and I thought Melanie had a really strong second half for us.”

“I thought our defense did a great job. I don’t think we came out shooting lights out. You’re going to have those nights, and when they happen, you need to be able to rely on your defense. We improved our rebounding, and we tried to take advantage of our size.”

USC Player Melanie Johnson

“The SEC’s a tough conference, and at this point, teams are trying to figure out how good they really are. It’s always good to get a win.”

“These past few days we’ve been focused on playing together as a team and coming out and being ready for SEC play.”
