Oklahoma Head Coach Sherri Coale

On the Game:
"We didn't shoot the ball well and that's the bottom line. Give Texas A&M credit for coming in here fired up. They played with a lot of intensity. They did what they do best which is playing athletic and staying after it. We made some mistakes but we found a way to win and that's what you have to do. We just battled and that's what conference play is all about."

On OU guard Stacey Dales:
" I think she got really frustrated early on because she had some real good looks and some shots in transition that she wasn't able to but in the basket. But I think late in the game she got her game face on and decided that she was going to will the ball in the basket and will every rebound that she could get which completely changed the face of the game."

On upcoming game with Kansas State:
"We now turn our attention to Kansas State. They're a very high-powered offense and we're going to have to figure out a way to stop them."

Oklahoma Senior Guard Stacey Dales

On the game:
"I'm very happy with the win. This is a good win for us and we're just ready to move on to the next game."

On the physical play:
"If you're getting it you have to give it back. Obviously if you are, then the officials are letting some calls go. You just have to feel the game out. 'Play against the game,' that's what coach Coale always says. Unfortunately, we didn't feel it out for most of the game but I think we figured it out about half-way through the second half."
