Overall thoughts heading into the weekend
"From the start, we lacked consistency on our side of the net. We had no real ball control and weren't able to side-out when we wanted. We knew what they were going to do and we weren't consistent in stopping it. Part of that was not following the game plan, but more than that was not taking care of things within our control - controlling the digs better, controlling the hitting better. Overall, our offense struggled."
On the performance of right-side hitters Milica Jovic and Izabela Grot
"Our right sides - Mili and Izzy - were our two most productive hitters. Other than that, nobody really had a good hitting match. It was only in game three that we showed some kind of consistency. Besides that, we weren't able to execute. All in all, we were inconsistent. You can't beat anybody like that. We were not even close to playing today the way we can play."
On Houston posting 14.0 team blocks on the night
"Some of that came from not controlling the ball, not controlling where we hit and not being able to hit around the block or over the block. A hitter should have awareness of where the block is. That's how you get blocked straight down. Tonight, it wasn't a case of getting blocked in a way that we can cover. It was getting blocked straight down."
On how the team can bounce back when the Green Wave play at Rice on Sunday
"We just have to be able to have some leadership on the court and play at the level we know we can play and have some consistency. You can't have four of six hitters hitting negative. It's just impossible to win like that."
