Joyce Center*Notre Dame, Indiana

Notre Dame Quotes

Head Coach Muffet McGraw

On the game… “I thought Rutgers’ two best players stepped up and played great. We battled at the end. We definitely tried to fight down the stretch but it was too little, too late. I thought Natalie Novosel played a great game. We are reliant on our top three scorers to do a lot of scoring on the perimeter and we didn’t shoot it well in the first half.”

Junior Guard Ashley Barlow

“We have to find our confidence again. We have to focus on getting in the gym and taking extra shots. We have to stay positive and can’t get down on anybody.”

Freshman Guard Natalie Novosel

“I tried to take advantage of the first step and attack the basket. Penetrating and creating more opportunities in transition will help our shooting.”
