Delaware coach Tina Martin: “We’d miss layups when we got the score within range, within striking distance, and 6 is striking distance. You’ve got to make some of those shots and we kept coming up emptyhanded.”

Delle Donne: “Nikki Newman did a phenomenal job defending me. Obviously, I’m extremely disappointed. I could have done a lot more offensively, but things happen and you’ve got to move on and do something in the postseason.”

Delle Donne on fatigue: “No excuses. I was ready to go. I certainly have to take care of myself now because I’ll be hurting a while. But we’ll be fine.”
