Quotes of the Match
Director of Volleyball Jill Kramer
Opening Statement
"I think any place that you go in the Big 12 is going to be a great home court advantage and home court environment. Oklahoma had that here today and I think we needed to manage that better. We just gave away some runs of points and that can't happen. You can't do that with any team in our league. We have to get back in the gym and we have to get better. We have to stay more checked in from point-to-point and get prepped for the next match."
