“Credit to Miami, we just could not contain the ball and it cost us the game,” said Notre Dame coach Muffett McGraw. “Our offense was just off. They made really big shots. We have a really good inside game, but they had the better inside game. Really disappointing. They played harder.”

“They’re a great team, can score like crazy, but we never panicked, went deep into the shot clock to limit their possessions, and that was our game plan,” said (Miami Coach Katie) Meier.

“They wanted it more than we did,” said (Jessica) Shepard. “We have to find a way to make stops.”
