QUOTEBOOK...

SHOCK H-COACH RICK MAHORN:   "Deanna Nolan is a big key for our offense. If she's
rolling, so does our offense.''

SHOCK GD DEANNA NOLAN:   "We weren't worried. We were hitting shots. It was just
a matter of getting those stops. We were in an offensive rhythm ... attacking, getting
to the basket, getting to the free-throw line.''
