Quotes from the USI-UE women’s basketball exhibition

USI junior forward Anna Hackert, on playing against former Memorial High School teammate Mallory Ladd, now a star player for the University of Evansville: “It just felt like I was playing just another player.”

Ladd on Hackert (courtesy of my colleague and UE beat writer Colleen Thomas): “Anna’s a great player. She’s tough. They’re going to have a great season. It was a battle down there. She’s a strong girl, she’s smart and she finished well, so we really had to focus in and bring the double in on her to force errors.”

USI coach Rick Stein: “We could have practiced for 10 hours (Saturday) and not gotten out of it what we got out of this game. Evansville is similar to teams we’ll play in our league. With the way they play defense and their motion offense, we’ll see that a lot. This is the best (preparation) we could have had.”
