Recap| Box Score

North Carolina Head Coach Sylvia Hatchell
"We turned it over too much. Rebounds, turnovers, and heart were the difference in the game. ODU played hard and they deserved to win."
"We knew about ODU. They beat Penn State, so we knew how hard it is to play here. They have a tremendous home-court advantage."

On Myriah Spence:
We knew Spence could hit the three. On our scouting report, we had her as a good 3-point shooter. We just didn't cover her well."

North Carolina Freshman Forward Camille Little
"This is a very physical team. We accepted being boxed out. That was a major part of the game, offensive rounds. That's why we lost."

Old Dominion Head Coach Wendy Larry
"The difference came down to effort on the glass. Limiting North Carolina was huge. We talked in the locker room about how terrific winning this game was for our program. We'll enjoy this for at least a week."
"One advantage we had was that we played tough competition. We're probably the most athletic team North Carolina played to date."

On Tish Lyons:
"She missed one, and Tish was the only one who believed she would make another. She had 32 seconds to get in a better light. Defensively, she had a tremendous game. She wants to get better and better. She's going to play big minutes for us."

Old Dominion senior guard Myriah Spence
"I guess I was feeling it. Some of the open shots, you have to knock down. My team did a great job getting me the ball."
