Pepperdine/Gonzaga Quotes

April 21, 2006

Gonzaga Head Coach D.J. Gurule

Opening comments:
I think we played well and our girls came out to compete. Pepperdine is obviously Top 10 in the country and should be. I think our girls played like they should have played * with everything to gain and nothing to lose. Especially No. 1 and No. 6, Emily [Anderson] and Courtney [Lau], played really well and stayed focused. I know we've struggled a bit this year, but we are a better team that our record shows.

On playing singles first as opposed to doubles today due to the chance of rain:I think most coaches want to get the doubles in first. It is a good warm-up and we have a strong doubles team. I would have liked to played doubles first, but I understand the reason behind it. The decision to do that might have been a bit premature, and we would have liked to get doubles in first. We'll do what was told for us to do and we'll compete from there.

Pepperdine Head Coach Gualberto Escudero

Opening comments:
I was actually pleased that we were going to play singles first before the doubles. It gave me a chance to rest some players who are still recovering from some injuries. I was also pleased that we got a chance to practice before the rains came. The courts are very fast so it was nice to play to get a feel for the court. I know we've been out of matches for a while now, so it was nice to get started again, especially since we'll have final exams next week.
