"I can't tell you how proud I am of her. It's been a work in progress for her to where we are today," Mississippi State coach Vic Schaefer said. "She's going to graduate in four years, she was marginally eligible when she came to us. I'm proud of that. I'll be in front row when she walks that stage. Her development as a young lady as well as a basketball player is like something I haven't seen. She's deserving of being an All-American. ... I love the kid to death, she's made me a better coach, father, a husband."
"For us, man, I just can't be prouder of my team today. You talk about competitive, tough. I just thought my team just fought tooth and nail today in a really hostile environment," Bulldogs coach Vic Schaefer said.
