Recap| Box Score

William & Mary Head Coach Debbie Taylor
"I think they're playing much better as a group. Individual players have grown and matured this year. They're playing a lot better right now. We struggled to put the ball in the basket."

On the CAA Tournament being at ODU:
"I like to play in the environment with the biggest draw. The fans support the kids whether ODU's playing or not. ODU has been a powerhouse for so long and I think everyone in the conference is trying to close that gap."

Old Dominion Head Coach Wendy Larry

"Anytime you give five great seniors the opportunity to go all the way, it is a special night. I hope all of them take away something special from tonight. Let's not forget that the most important thing is that we have five young ladies with degrees from Old Dominion."

"There are a number of things, I believe, we still need to overcome. You are looking for consistency on the floor. We shot the ball consistently well. That's what senior night is all about."

"You come to Old Dominion and feel a great, great pride putting that uniform on. Players take and keep that pride. We constantly hear from significant players from the past and it gives the players a want to play. Those lessons are best taught by their colleagues; they have to come from their teammates."

Senior Forward, Monique Coker
"We were really having fun and that made this night special. Everyone played together, as a team. This was special for me. We never want to play lackadaisical; we can't get comfortable."

Senior Center, Cassie Calwell
"It was very emotional for me. These people have grown to be my family and I love each one of them individually. I appreciate being apart of the legacy of this team and Old Dominion, and sincerely appreciate every minute out there. First half it didn't hit me but the second half really did, knowing that this might be the last time I hit the floor."

Senior Forward, Myriah Spence
"This game was special for me as well. I really feel privileged to be apart of this team, this legacy. Just playing with my teammates, going out there giving my all, and having fun, made tonight special."
