POST-GAME QUOTES
TCU 72, TCU 57
Daniel-Meyer Coliseum
Fort Worth, Texas 

TCU head coach Jeff Mittie
Opening statement: 

“I thought it was a solid performance today. I liked the way we ended the first half and I like the way we started the second half. We had good execution today. Our defense was active, we got a lot of good tips, balls, steals and we ended with a pretty good performance by us all the way around.”

On the win today:
“We just try to keep it down to four different segments and then try to win those four. I thought we were really consistent. It was nice to have Latricia (Lovings) and Zahna (Medley) rest a little bit during this game because they have been playing hard the past few games. They played very well and the maturity in our group has helped us win games.”

On Latricia Lovings shot block streak:
“It just shows how much consistency she bring to every game. When we recruited L.T., I thought she was the most instinctive shot blocker that I’ve seen. She has really proven herself to this team.”

TCU senior center Latricia Lovings
On tying the school record in block shots in consecutive games
“It means a lot. I have talked to Sandora [Irvin] since freshman year and she told me if I could break any of her records, then do it. It is very humbling because she is one of TCU’s greats. It means a lot to me to have her have my back.”

On it being the first win against Texas Tech at home:
“It meant a lot to us today because this is the first time ever to beat Texas Tech on our floor. We came in and I think the win over Iowa State gave us the energy to come out fast and strong today.”

Texas Tech head coach Candi Whitaker
On how the team struggled with passes:
“We definitely didn’t handle the zone well. We had a hard time attacking it with the short corner and penetrating it when we had opportunities. You got to give TCU a lot of credit. They move well in their zone and their length bothered us, but we got to be better players, use more pass fakes, be able to break people down and put something on our passes.”

On the guards and their response to turnovers:
“I thought they were really shaky and to be a good zone offensive team, you have to understand how zones work. We are very much still in the stages of understanding how defensive zones work. How to beat them and when you have an advantage and when you don’t. I thought Diamond (Lockhart) settle down a little bit in the second half, but we clearly turned it over too much against their zone.”
