Sharron Rissmiller - Team Concept
"We just flew in yesterday and had one practice. We have nine more games on the east coast. Syracuse and Temple are next along with Maryland, Duke, Boston College, Richmond, St. Joe's, and Chicago State."
"It's a new team. It's difficult to play ODU because they know each other, have worked together before, and they have fundamentals."
"Five or six of our team members are conditioning for overseas or going into the WNBA."
"Old Dominion is well coached and is a solid defensive team. They are very well put together this early on."
Wendy Larry - Head Coach, Old Dominion
"We've seen a plethora of these names before. Kim (Giddens) and Okeisha (Howard) both saw Lisa Burras and Takeisha Lewis in the NCAA's. We've played against (LaQuanda) Barksdale before. Transitionally we did some very nice things."
On Kim Giddens' performance: "She's capable of rebounding and has nice athleticism. She needs to rebound more and really work. This is her chance."
"We have perimeter game, but our post game will complement our perimeter game."
On Corrina Turner's performance: "She gets down on herself too quickly, but her presence will be significant. She was our leading rebounder tonight."
On Playing in the new Constant Center: "We have to get the fans more involved, get them out of the nice, comfortable seats. We have to make it exciting. We've waited a long time to have this type of facility."
Okeisha Howard, Old Dominion Senior Guard
"I feel I played o.k. I'm more concerned about getting other players involved. I like running the point and I'm getting more comfortable with it. My asset to the team is pushing the ball up the floor."
Kim Giddens, Old Dominion Senior Forward/Center
"It was overwhelming at first, but I'm getting used to it. It really hypes us up now."
