Pitt vs. Siena
Nov. 13, 2012
Fitzgerald Field House

Quoting head coach Agnus Berenato

On the win:
“It was a great win. I’m really excited about it. I’m proud of our team because we were able to come out and really embrace playing in the Field House. I love playing in here, it’s like a throwback. I thought that we really had a good team effort. I thought that Ashlee Anderson played really well. She shot 100 percent. I thought Asia Logan was amazing and I thought that the play of Brianna Kiesel was tremendous. She was the glue for us today and I thought she did a really great job.”   

On playing three games so close together:
“There was a method to our madness. Last year we were on the road a lot and we were really really young so this year we said we are going to have home games that are back-to-back-to-back because later in the year when you play tournaments that’s how you play and the kids have to get used to focusing in on different scouts. It’s all about scouting and you only have one practice in between. To have three games in five days is hard for a veteran team but we’re trying to act like this is a veteran team. We’re trying to teach them how to grow up quickly.”

On being able to empty the bench:
“I want everyone to play every game it’s just sometimes it’s not possible. I think that our walkons give us so much every day. They worked harder than our regular players today because they were the scout team. They work so hard so I want them to play. I want them to get in games. They did a great job for us. They were defensive. They got up and down the floor and they gave good effort.”

Quoting sophomore guard Brianna Kiesel:

On the balanced offensive attack:
“When we have everyone scoring it makes the game a lot more fun. It’s nice to not have so much pressure on just one person to do well.”

On winning:
“It feels great. That first loss was a tough loss but we picked it up and came out and showed that we can really play.”

On the defensive effort:
“I think our defense was really good today. I thought our zone press and man were really good and I thought that we did a good job of playing well as a team.”

Quoting junior guard Marquel Davis:

On the team effort in the win:
“We always strive for it to be a team effort. Any win is a collective win and it was a great win. It’s always great when you have a collective effort where everyone contributes.”

On playing aggressively:
“I think playing aggressively is so important. For me, going through my injuries, getting back to the game of basketball I try to really focus on defense and I think when the whole team focuses on defense it creates a lot more easy opportunities for the offense and playing aggressive is a big key.”

On winning:
“It always feels good to win. I think the team is just going to continue to stay humble and work hard and hopefully we’ll continue to come out victorious”
