UCLA-Alabama A&M Post-Game Quotes
By: UCLA Athletics

Nov. 30, 2007

Head coach Andy Banachowski

"I was really pleased with the way we played tonight. I was a little concerned how we would perform coming off the travel, but we did a great job executing what we wanted to do tonight. We played a very complete game. We had good defense, a good block and our attacking started well. Everything looked sharp tonight and it was very satisfying."

(on resting some starters in game three) "It was fortunate that we were able to play everybody and rest our starters, especially in the third game to give everybody a taste of NCAA Tournament competition. It will allow our starters to be a little fresher for tomorrow night."

Senior middle blocker Rachell Johnson

(on playing Alabama A&M) "What tends to happen for some teams when they are playing a team at a lower level is that they let up. But we were really focused and we played our kind of game."

(on getting off to a good start) "It was really important. If we were to let things slip away, there is no telling what would have happened. We haven't done well recently when we are pushed, so it was good to take over from the beginning, play our game and build momentum as the game went on."

Junior outside hitter Kaitlin Sather

(on everyone getting to play) "It's so fun when everyone gets to play. We all train the same amount of hours. It's not as if everybody gets time off whether you're playing or not. Everyone played hard."

(on a potential matchup with Clemson in front of a hostile crowd) "I've been to Nebraska a few times, so I think we're ready. I'm not necessarily worried about the crowd because of our past experience dealing with large crowds. It's a small gym which is different from Pauley Pavilion. But the Pac-10 is the best preparation you can have. Going into the tournament, we are really prepared for strong teams."
