NIU vs University of Illinois (Women's)
Carol Owens, Head Coach
On the game
"This is a great win for the program after coming of a loss from IUPUI, our kids bounced back and just got determined. We have a good senior class, they're great leaders....Illinois is a really good team, knowing them throughout the years and their reputation they have, they have some really good players and they are going to do really well in the Big Ten."
On Stephanie Raymond and Jessi Wilcox's game
" These two ladies really played a great game tonight.
On readiness of the game
"We were mentally ready, we knew they had a size advantage against us and we needed to pack it up inside. They can shoot the three very well and have a great inside presence."
On the inside game
" I thought Whitney did very well, it was a tough assignment for her. Overall, our three posts are doing really well.
Stephanie Raymond, guard
On being pumped up
" I had momentum because it was Illinois, but more so because of last game. We wanted to show our home fans how we can play against a good team. We had eleven steals tonight, I think our defense played amazing. We definitely wanted this game.
On Jessi Wilcox's three point shot
I am so happy that Jessi made that three pointer. I think that started something at the end of the game.
