Just the Quotes: One step at a time

Lynette Woodard's comments from the Big 12 teleconference.

On coaching against coaches with 500 or more victories:

"It's a great accomplishment for them. I know the feeling. I've had 500 victories too, but on the other side of the game. I get to flip the script now. I am not really worried about that. I just have to stay focused with the situation that I'm in and take one step at a time, one day at a time. They're great coaches and it's awesome to have this opportunity. I learned from them, from watching their games as well as what I have learned here at Kansas. I just think it is a beautiful experience and a unique opportunity to be in this position."

On preparing for the game at Texas Tech:

"We're adjusting, we lost our most valuable player. We just have to respond to the challenge. There have been all kinds of adjustments around here that each of us have had to go through and are still going through. All we can do is take one day at a time and not even that, one step at a time."

On Marian Washington's reaction to the victory against Oklahoma State:

"Of course she was very happy for the team. She loves these players and wants them to do well. Whenever they step up and respond and just play with their hearts, it's great for all of us."

On changing the lineup against Texas Tech:

"It's not game-by-game for us. We have a strategy, a philosophy here at Kansas, that the team has put in place and I am here just to execute it. I don't think there will be any changes, unless someone gets injured between now and game time. I am just going to stick to the game plan. It worked for us the last game and I am going to continue with it. If I have to make adjustments, I will."

On Baylor's head coach Kim Mulkey-Robertson:

"Having the opportunity to play with Kim in the 1984 Olympics and a few tournaments prior to that, I really got to know her. She is a great person, one that works very hard and has no fear. That's what I remember most about her. She may have been the smallest one out there on the court, but she had a presence and she guided us. We looked to her, she was our point guard. We were very successful and had nothing but good times. As I have watched her over the years at Louisiana Tech and then when she took over at Baylor, she's done an excellent job. It's no different than the way she was on the court. She has so much passion about the game."
