Taylor Murray Talks Team Improvements

On her rebounding this season …

“Everyday Coach Mitchell talks about it. I’m not the get-back person, but my other job is to go down and get the ball. If they’re not boxing me out, then that’s my other opportunity. But just for us to get an extra possession, to get another shot clock, if we can get another good shot. Just go to the glass, if they don’t box me out I’m going to go get that rebound.”

On the team rebounding from the loss at Baylor … 

“I agree with Maci. When we got back here we focused a lot on shooting, just trying to get back into that flow. We had practice Saturday where we kept shooting and shooting. Shooting shots that we knew would go in, and it went in today.”

On Maci’s shooting …

“One thing we do every day in practice is we have a shooting competition and she always wins. That helps too because in games she’s going to have to make those shots so it just builds up her confidence. Like Tennessee Tech’s coach said, she’s very smart. As her point guard, I know what she wants to do if she likes flaring or curling up. I can try to get that good pass to her, get in the pocket for the shot to go in.”

On what the team needs to improve on defensively …

“Dribble and drives. We’re up there playing defense, but they’re getting way too close (to the offensive player). But we’re getting driven on way too much. If we could contain them, it would help everyone out. We wouldn’t have to screen as much and we could get a rebound and a push.”
