Postgame Quotes: #8 Hawaii 9, #18 Michigan 3

March 7, 2013


Michigan Head Coach Matt Anderson
On the game ... "The difference in the game was Monika Eggens, who is arguably the best offensive player in college water polo. Our game plan worked in terms of everything except for the best player in the pool scored four goals, including three in the first half that separated. We did some good things. You could tell we hadn't played in a little while, but we still had an opportunity and stuck to our game plan, which was to control their best shooter."

On the return of junior captain Hathaway Moore ... "It was nice. She definitely brought a spark and did some great things. She did some things that she will improve upon. It was her first game in almost a year, so she was a little bit rusty. But she also provided us what I know she's going to provide us as the season goes on."

On the spring-break trip ... "Without a doubt, this has been a valuable experience. All told, over the six days we've been out here, they've probably only had about four hours to themselves. Everything else has been scripted out, whether it's physically working out or doing mental training. Considering more than half the team is freshmen, it will definitely benefit them, and we're definitely better now, as a team, than when we first got here. We still have a lot of work to do, but that's part of the excitement of getting back home and starting to apply some of the things we've talked about."
