Tennessee Head Coach Rob Patrick:
On his team's performance versus Arkansas in the win:
"When we keep working hard in the match, good things will happen. I just thought that we wore Arkansas down. I think they have had three matches in five days, but they are a very talented team. I thought that we played a good, smart, mature match. The upperclassmen settled things down on the court for the kids and got the energy going the right way in the match."
On a possible rematch versus Florida in the finals:
"I think that everyone here wants to see that. I am sure that Florida wants to play us again. We would love to play whoever wins this next match (Florida versus Georgia). Georgia is a really good team. Alexandra Oquendo was almost unstoppable in their game yesterday. Whoever we play is going to be a really tough match."
Arkansas Head Coach Chris Poole:
On the game: "I'm proud of the way the girls worked. Obviously we came out in game one and played really well. We played well in the first part of game two, and then just kind of went to sleep in the later part of the game. We've had some problems this year with us giving teams runs and it felt like we were doing that in games two, three and four. We battled with the other team, only to give up three or four points in a row, and you just can't do that."
On Tennessee's performance:
"Tennessee has a great bunch that are really playing well right now and they certainly earned a victory today."
