Pitt vs. Florida State Player Quotes




Jan. 2, 2014

Recap |  Box Score

Quoting junior guard Brianna Kiesel

On tonight’s first ACC game:

“We have come so far. I am so excited for the team we have. Although we lost, we played really well and we came through. We never faltered and we stayed together as a team. We just fought. We had that fight and that is something we have been missing for the last couple of years.”

On how this year is different than past years when down by many points:

“Coach is always optimistic no matter how much we are down. She always tells us to keep pushing. When she doesn’t drop her head, we don’t drop our heads. I think we kept pushing. We came up a little short but I would take my team over any team in the ACC.”

On starting the ACC season against Florida State: 

“They are a very good team, very disciplined, good 2-3 zone. They are big. It is hard to see over them. Number 33 is one of the best post players I have seen in a long time. Just catch and finish. I thought we did a very good job. Just growing off of this and we have a game on Sunday. Take the good things we did and make it into a whole game effort on Sunday.”

Quoting sophomore guard Loliya Briggs:

On starting the ACC season:

“I am definitely excited and I know as a team we are excited. We just competed with the number 21 team in the country. Even with all the bad mistakes, we still only lost by nine points. That showa improvement, growth and how much better we can get throughout the season. This is one of the top teams in the conference so it can only go up from here."
