WBB: Joni Taylor Postgame Presser – Georgia-93, Oklahoma-80

On Gabby Connally’s efforts in today’s game…  

“I’m really happy for Gabby. She is someone who has won a lot of games for us and will continue to win a lot of games for us. She is our point guard and our experienced player on the floor. Even though it didn’t show up in the scoring column the last two games, I think we get so used to expecting points from her,  and there’s so much more that she brings to the table. For her to come out and have the performance she did, I’m happy for her. What a way to go out after  getting her 1,000-point ball today before we tipped.”

  

 

 

 

 

On the team’s performance today for the first home game of the season… 

“We were really happy to be home after being on the road. To me, it’s the same answer as it was the last time we played. We have options, and we have depth.  That’s what shows up, and that’s a really fun style to watch to look over and see all our young ladies cheering for each other. I think we have really clearly defined roles, and everyone stays within their role and shows up to provide what we need from them day in and day out. If we continue to do that and stay healthy, we’re  going to be a fun team to watch this year.”  

On missing some shots early and finishing the game strong offensively… 

 

 

 

 

“Just continue to shoot it. They were all really good looks. They were looks within our offense and they were looks that we were used to getting, taking, and making. So, you just continue to make those same looks, make those same reads, and we know it’s going to fall in the hole. The area where I was a little disappointed was from the free-throw line. We’ve been really good so far this year from the free-throw line, and we have to continue that because as you can see, we are going to get to the line this year. We have to take advantage of that  when people foul us.”
