Milwaukee Head Coach Sandy Botham
On UWM's depth "We were able to wear them out today. We came into this game wanting to play a lot of people and we were able to do that. We got everybody into the game and a little more experience."
On the Panthers' bench "We got great production out of everybody today. That is what we've needed this season, people coming off the bench and providing a spark for us. If we are going to win games, we will need three or four people scoring in double-figures."
On overcoming early shooting problems to shoot 60.7% in the second half "They three a zone at us early and we had a hard time getting in sync and into a rhythm. We were able to find a weak spot, where our opportunities were and started taking them. We also did a better job of getting to the free throw line in the second half."
On Maurika Hickman
"Maurika hasn't seen a lot of minutes this year. To come in and get 10 points and be that great spark off the bench was big. With Jody Crumble hurt, it's good that she stepped up like she did. It certainly helps me to breath easier."
