Postgame Quotes
Virginia 78, Marshall 56
Dec. 29, 2007

Virginia head coach Debbie Ryan
On the team’s strong second half:

“I knew it was a matter of timing before we got our offensive rhythm back. I thought our offense flowed nicely in the second half and we hit a few 3-pointers, which helped.”

On the contributions of the bench:

“The players that came off the bench played extremely well. I am very proud of them and I think that is what the difference in the game was.”

On defending Marshall’s guards:

“We made an adjustment at halftime and Monica Wright did a great job of getting between her player and the basket. We defended better in the second half which is what allowed us to pull away.”

Virginia fourth-year guard Sharne Zoll
On the play of teammate Abby Robertson:

“Abby was a huge spark for us. She was our leading rebounder at halftime and when no one else was getting on the offensive glass, she was.”

On pulling away in the second half:
“We stepped it up a notch in the second half. Their guards are really good players so we focused on them defensively, and also found our offensive rhythm.”
