QUOTES

"It's nice to finally get back on the court after a good training camp. We played well enough today to beat Lithuania tonight, but many facets of the game will need to get cleaned up in order for us to continue to improve moving forward." - Lisa Thomaidis, Head Coach

"We knew coming in that it was going to be a physical game. Our play was not pretty, but we stuck to our game plan and played for each other. We have a young group and there is always a lot to learn from each game. Looking forward to five more games here in China." - Shay Colley
