Notre Dame vs. Evansville
Joyce Center - Notre Dame Indiana
Coach Misty Murphy
On the play of Evansville...
"We knew we were going to have some pressure on us and how we handled that was key to the out come of the game. Unfortunately, we were on our heels most of the game."
"We knew Notre Dame was going to make a run or two and we hoped to counter with a run or two of our own. We broke down when we stopped talking out there. We needed to talk a little bit sooner. We need to not be so passive against such a great pressure team"
On the play of Notre Dame...
"Notre Dame outworked us tonight. They are certainly a more talented group top-to-bottom. Notre Dame did out-scrap us on a few plays this game."
Shannon Novosel, Sr., C
On playing against her sister, Notre Dame Freshman Natalie Novosel...
"We have always been on the same team, so this was kind of weird. It probably won't happen again. She held her own."
"I think Natalie has gotten better with each game she has played. She had a couple of nice offensive moves out there. I even got a hand on one of her shots and it still went so, so she has definitely gotten stronger."
"Our family was wearing both purple and blue and gold, but they were sitting in my section. Our mom had a combination of all our colors on her shirt."
