Head Coach Paul Westhead

On the win…

“Our team played very well in a tight game. This is two games in a row where our team turned it up at the end, instead of turning it down.”

“We have a rivalry with Washington, but this was nothing personal. It’s a great conference win for our team.”

“If I had to pick out an individual performance tonight, Katelyn Loper’s three’s came at a really important time down the stretch.”

“We know we’re a good team. I’m not saying we’re going to beat everybody, but they were hungry for a win and that’s what they got. I’m happy for them.”

On Jillian Alleyne…

“Her numbers are better, but she’s been doing this all season. I couldn’t be happier with how she’s playing. She’s becoming a complete player. “

“She’s very confident. That’s the big change from last year. Now she’s earning the rebounds and knows how she’s doing it.”

On beating Washington…

“It’s a huge rivalry between us and them. Washington State was a great win but this one was greater because it’s Washington.”

On the offensive success…

“I felt like I was confident enough in my teammates. Lexi (Petersen) was going to get the ball and push it or I had Chrishae (Rowe) who was going to look for me on the inside. So whether I had the ball or they did I felt we were going to come back and we weren’t going to let what they did frazzle us. So I was very confident.”

On Lexi Petersen…

“Lexi has stepped in huge for Ariel (Thomas), who’s out right now. She pushes the ball and gets us there. So I’m really proud of her.”

Guard Lexi Petersen

On the win…

“Last season our only two Pac-12 wins were against Washington State, so now that we have a different team under our belt we know that we’re on the rise and we know that we can beat the other Pac-12 teams too.”

On playing the point guard position…

“I think my teammates are getting used to me at point guard. Ariel

(Thomas) and I play very differently, but I think now we’re settling in and we know what we want to do. They know here I’m going and I know where they’re going, so it works out well.”
