Vanderbilt Head Coach Jim Foster:
You play the season and different things happen and you have
to adjust. Alabama really came at us in the first half. Our
defense kept us in the game.
Question: You're team has not played as physical in the past
as they do now - do you think they are stronger?
JF: Yeah, I do - We'll dance - whatever the dance.
I think there has been a perception in the past that Vanderbilt
can be intimidated - I like that someone (reporter who asked
the question) who has watched this game for a while has seen
that (VU's progress).
On Jenni Benningfield's play:
She came in and gave us a lot of things - she did some good
things. Juli Colli did too - Abi (Ramsey) did some good things
defensively. I'm not afraid to go to my bench.
On Physical nature of game:
I can not remember a game in the SEC that has not been physical
ever since my freshman year. They are all physical.
Alabama Head Coach Rick Moody:
Obviously, Vanderbilt has a great basketball team. I give
credit to them - they came out in the second half and executed
I am disappointed that we did not do the things in the second
half on both ends of the floor that we did in the first half.
We never got our transition game going. If you want to beat
great teams, you're not going to shut them out. You can't
expect to score 46 points and win the the SEC. When a team
(VU) spreads a defense out, you have got to forct the basket
and we didn't do that.
On Alabama Not Taking a One-and-One Free Throw Attempt:
I don't think I've ever coached a game when we didn't shoot
a 1 and 1 free throw -- I guess Vanderbilt plays perfect defense.
On Chantelle Anderson:
When you quit on a play with Chantelle Anderson, you might
as well count it because they are going to pass it in and
she will get a layup.
