Head Coach Dave Rubio:

“We were really excited. We played well, especiallyduring the first two games. But Virginia played pretty well in game one too.Were pleased that we were able to execute as well as we did. I felt watchingthe film on Virginia that they were capable of playing on a high level.(Lisa)Rutledge player very well for us, and we knew we would be able to giveVirginiaproblems if they didnt pass well, and they didn’t.”

“We’ve been knocking on the door against the best teams in the country thisseason. We have the talent and are getting experience in tough matches.For us,it just seems like putting everything together and having everything happen atonce.”

Arizona Setter Dana Burkholder:
“It was really disappointing when Erin(Aldrich) transferred because shes such a great player. But itll be great toplay against her if Texas advances. Were not focusing solely on her though.”


Head Coach Melissa Aldrich Shelton:

“I’m very proud of the way we playedtonight. The NCAA Tournament was one of our goals this season, so I’m pleasedwe made it this far. We lost to a very good team in Arizona so there’s nothingto be ashamed of.”
