Freshman guard Katie Rutan
On her confidence:
"I feel more comfortable now. With the help of our team in practice, I've been getting better defensively and they make me work hard on offensive when we play together."
Coming off the bench:
"It's kind of my role to be a spark off the bench. I go in there and try to get it done and everyone gets excited, which gets me going."
Game plan against Dayton:
"We knew we had to come out strong because it's Dayton and they are one of our biggest rivals. It was our goal to make stops. We killed it on the boards, and I think we had a tremendous night.
Senior guard Dee Dee Jernigan
"If we get her open she will hit it. She was never on my team that much in the summer and if we lost it was because of Katie."
On her role:
"My role was the same last year. I can change the tempo of the game and I am comfortable with that."
