Utah Head Coach Anthony Levrets
"First of all, I'd like to congratulate Colorado on a really good game. This is the third time we played them this year. This is by far the best that they played and they played a really good game on us. I was a little disappointed with our first 20 minutes of effort and very pleased with our effort in the second half. But ultimately, Colorado was the better team tonight."
On considering what you have been through this season, has this been pretty much par for the course? Or how does tonight's effort compared to what you've seen from your team all season long?
"It's been remarkable. I'm as proud of this team for what they have been able to accomplish than any group I have been around. We have had four season-ending injuries and six injuries that have been six weeks or longer as part of this team this year. And to have the ability to be above .500 at the end of the season, win five of our last seven in conference, I couldn't be prouder of them. We had a tough time executing, we just lost our point guard, with people in new positions. It's just kinda been the way that it's gone."
Sophomore Taryn Wicijowski
On how tough was Colorado's defense down low, particularly Janeesa (Chucky) Jeffrey down there?
"Yeah, they didn't come every time, so it was kind of surprising. When people come every time, you know that you have to pass out, or this is what I need to do. But when they are only coming some of the time, it makes it a lot harder."
Sophomore Michelle Plouffe
On what's it like to in the kind of drought you guys had the first half, 13 minutes without a field goal? And for you personally as the leading scorer, frustrated all night, what's that like for you personal?
"It's pretty frustrating. Unfortunately that's happened to us before, when we played USC we were down 17-0 to start the game. It's just frustrating, obviously as a player, but you have to keep shooting, keep attacking, and unfortunately they don't fall for you, or for me, at least."
