Indiana vs. Iowa

Head Coach Felisha Legette-Jack
On the win:
"I'm just really proud of these young ladies, their effort, their commitment to each other and their commitment to our staff. These young ladies really understand the values of great coaches, and they really stepped it up today. Our defense is getting better and better and our point guard (Jamie Braun) is really making a statement and really being the general of our team. Finally, I couldn't be more proud of Whitney (Thomas) because she's over 1,000 points, and knocking on 1,000 rebounds door and that's a credit to her effort and ability to just play the game."
On the commitment to defense:
"One word, trust. They believe in each other, they trust each other and they're able to separate things that don't matter from things that do matter. They're mature and they have great seniors leading the team that have really guided our team's season on the court and off the court."
Senior Forward Whitney Thomas
On reaching 1,000 career points:
"It was really great to be able to see more people in the stands, and it's definitely a great accomplishment but again it's a team sport and I couldn't have gotten there without my teammates. They really push me to go harder and that's how I got to where I am."
Junior Guard Jamie Braun
On becoming a point guard:
"I would say that I can run a team. Last year was my first year but this year I feel more like a point guard and feel more like the team general."
