Postgame Quotes vs. Belmont

Chattanooga Women's Basketball Postgame Quotes
Belmont at Chattanooga
McKenzie Arena - Chattanooga, Tenn.
Sunday - November 17, 2013

Chattanooga Head Coach Jim Foster
Thoughts on the second half as opposed to the first half

“We were more aggressive, engaged and responsible in the second half. Our objective wasn’t met. We like to make more foul shots than our opponents take. With these new rules, it’s going to take a while for players to understand what you can and can’t do. But I thought we played a lot smarter in the second. The ball moved and we scored in a lot of ways because we moved the ball.”

On if the Mocs’ lacked aggression in the first half
“I think today was more of not everybody doing things the way we wanted them to do them instead of a lack of aggression. How we were going to go against their screen action. Some people came into the game and started to try to negotiate the screens, but we didn’t want to do that. We wanted to follow the player, go hard and I don’t think it was any correlation that way. I thought it was more specific to today, and once we understood that it was much easier to play.”

Thoughts on Faith Dupree’s clutch game
“I think she got there. She was two-for-nine in the first half and she was six-for-nine in the second half. In the first half I thought she took quick shots and some inappropriate shots. She was trying to give us something, but we kind of play another way, and in the second half she sort of let it come to her. We found her in a better position. Therefore, I think that’s why she had more success.”

On if it can be expected that Ashlen Dewart only sees limited playing time
“I don’t think she will. Ashlen is a strong person, and people tend to bounce because of her strength. I think she gets a call or two a game that are not her fouls, and I think it will even itself out. But she has to understand because of that, she really has to be disciplined and intelligent in how she defends. She is going to get the cheap calls that aren’t real, and she can’t create a foul or two that she shouldn’t by not being disciplined.”

Taylor Hall, Forward, Senior
Thoughts on what changed from the first half to the second half
“Coach stressed that in the locker room. Offensively and defensively, we weren’t up to par with aggressiveness. We did a good job of picking it up, and our guards did a good job of getting to the paint and creating things from there.”

On playing 2 p.m. Sunday games
“It’s a little different, but we practice at 2 p.m. a lot so that kind of helps. It is definitely a change of pace.”

On the team’s aggression in the first half
“Coach keyed in on our aggression. It was almost like we carried over what we were doing in the second half against Tennessee to the first half of this game. We discussed it at half time, and I think our guards did a better job. From there everything seemed to open up for us.”

Faith Dupree, Forward, Senior
On picking up the win over Belmont
“I wasn’t so sure in the first half. We came out a little rough, but I am glad that we got the win and we started playing well in the second half.”

On what changed from the first to the second half
“We were moving the ball and we were executing our offense. We scored in different ways and weren’t doing the same thing every time. We were just trying to get people open.”

On being affective under the goal
“I was just trying to make sure our team got the open shots. If I am scoring, then it opens it up for the guards. I was trying to get them some shots as well. I was really going with the flow of the game.”
