Recap |  Final Stats


UCLA Head Coach Andy Banachowski
"I thought UAB was a good test for us. They had some hitters, and I thought our team made the necessary adjustments as the match progressed. I don't think we were quite in rhythm, but I thought we got better through the night, and we will continue to get better."

on Saturday's second-round match versus Utah "Utah is a pretty strong team. They are big and will present a huge challenge for us at the net. But we have faced teams like that before, and we will use our strength and quickness to counter that."

UAB Head Coach Kerry Messersmith
"Our kids played flat in the first two games. It's hard [to lose] because we've played so hard all year long. We didn't know what to expect, really, because this is the first [NCAA Tournament appearance] for these players. But we played UCLA as tough as anyone has played them all year long."
