“They (Texas A&M) were really physical and they were bumping. With any Big 12 game, they are going to bump. You just have to keep your composure and fight through it.” - Baylor Center Danielle Wilson
“It was just a great atmosphere and a good basketball game. Our key was getting into transition and getting some easy baskets, because they are so strong inside. You try to play against Rachel Allison, Danielle Wilson or Jessika Bradley. Those are three of the most physical kids that we respect more than anyone in this league, but it is very hard to beat us here at home.” - Texas A&M Head Coach Gary Blair
