Alabama Quotes:

Head Coach Judy Green Quotes:

“I thought Clemson won the points tonight that they needed to win, and certainly the long rallies where we had momentum they were able to hang in there and find a way to score those points. That takes a little away of your confidence. I am also proud of our team, from the time we’ve played our last game until tonight, I feel that we have improved as a team.”

“Our number one priority was to come here and be competitive, and I believe we were tonight. We lost some momentum when it was 22 to 23. Clemson came up with a couple of big blocks. I think that a big block can seize the momentum from one side of the net to the other. They made the plays towards the end of game 4, making it very hard for us to come back.”

Brooks Webster Quotes:

“They made the key plays they needed to make, and they won the long rallies, and they did what they were supposed to do tonight.”

Amy Pauly Quotes:

“We believed after the second game that we could win. I don’t think we ever gave up and I’m proud of our win in the third game.”

Clemson Quotes:

Head Coach Jolene Jordan Hoover Quotes:

“This was an exciting win for us. Of course, we’re really excited that we’re in the tournament and I thought Alabama played fantastic. They gave us everything that we could handle and I’m just really excited to get one and be alive still (in the tournament).”

“We weren’t feeling real good in game four, down a few points. We kept talking in the timeouts that we’ve got to keep it positive. We were trying to get the team to let the mistake go and look forward to the next point. Didem (Ege) said in a timeout that she felt we weren’t playing as a team and everyone got fired up because Didem is a woman of few words. We came out of that time out ready to charge.”

“I noticed that she (Lia Proctor) had seven kills in the second game and I was letting our setter know that as well. Lia did a great job for us tonight and she came up big when we needed it.”

Lia Proctor Quotes:

“I thought that passing was really good and it made it easier for the better sets and better kills.”

Jeannette Abbott Quotes:

“I definitely think that the first game jitters are gone. I think they were gone after that first point. I think after that first pass everyone just relaxed and played like we normally play. I think it definitely helped that we played at home and we had an amazing crowd tonight. I think tomorrow will be exciting. I think we are all prepared for UCLA and we’re ready to go out and get a win and head to Sacramento.”
