Utah Head Coach Elaine Elliott
Elliott on Shona Thorburn's Performance
"Shona did a great job distributing the ball tonight. We finished better tonight than we have in the past and that really helped our team get the win."
Elliott on the Win Over Utah Valley State
"They (UVSC) shot lights out. They played really well tonight and they came in really prepared. Overall, I think we did a good job, but we need to work on defending against the three-pointer."
Utah Junior Guard Shona Thorburn
Thorburn on Her Performance
"I wanted to come out aggressive, because in the past I've always been a slow starter. I'm playing the point this year and I'm really trying to dish the ball and get my teammates open. I'm also really trying to be aggressive on the boards."
Thorburn on the Victory and Nearly Notching a Triple-Double
"This was a good win for our team. I think being aggressive was the key. Honestly, I would rather have 11 assists and 11 rebounds then 11 points."
Thorburn on Utah Valley State
"They shot the ball really well. We can't allow this many shots. We have a big game Saturday (against Washington) and we can't let them shoot like UVSC did tonight."
