University of North Carolina Head Coach Donna Papa
On the game...
“I thought the bottom of our lineup did a really nice job, we made some changes before the game and they did a great job."

“I thought our girls battled really well. They had a lot of confidence and had fun out there.” 

On going into extra innings…
“I’m really proud of our girls competing like they did. We made a couple of bad mistakes in the eighth inning, which was uncharacteristic of us. We pride ourselves on being a really good defensive team and we made some bad mistakes that could have cost us, but we recovered.”

On beating Wisconsin…
“It was really good to win over a really good Wisconsin team who is going off a high after winning the Big 10 tournament. I’m proud of our girls.”

----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

University of Wisconsin Head Coach Yvette Healy
On the game in general…
“It was a great game, we are really proud of our kids. North Carolina is a great team and we are still trying to figure out how to beat great teams. I give North Carolina credit for playing a great game. As coaches, we were proud of our players’ effort.”

On questionable fielding decisions…
“You get your outs where you get your outs. I wasn’t displeased at all.”

On rain delay…
“I don’t know if it hurt us at all. I think we were pretty focused coming out of it.”

University of Wisconsin Pitcher Cassandra Darrah
On the rain delay…
“We just had to wait it out. I was warm and ready but just didn’t execute when the game restarted.”

On Friday’s game
“Coach always says we just need a shot at it. We have to let today go and be ready for the next game.”

On pitch count
“I’ll be ready to go next. Today’s pitch count was high but I’ll be ok.”
