Zuzi Klimesova & Jillian Danker interview

VandyMania talked to Jillian Danker and Zuzi Klimesova about the #1 seed for the Commodores.

VandyMania: Senior leadership has been a theme for the season. You've led the team through the SEC tournament. Now as a senior with the NCAA tournament ahead, what do you do?

Zuzi Klimesova: I go out there, and I give my best, as I've done the whole year. I work hard, play hard, and I'm sure everybody on the team is going to do the same.

VandyMania: What are your thoughts about seeding?

Zuzi Klimesova: To be honest with you, I expected a Number 2. A Number1 is awesome. At the same time, we're going to play some good teams, so we need to go out there and win. Otherwise the season is over, and it really doesn't matter what seed you got in the beginning.

VandyMania: Heading off to the Big Dance, as a senior, what do you have to do?

Jillian Danker: We need to make sure that people are focused on the task at hand, that no one is looking ahead. Tennessee got Number 2, so we could eventually play them, but we need to make sure that we stay focused and just work hard -- just continue what we've been doing, especially this last half of the season .

VandyMania: What are your thoughts about the seeding?

Jillian Danker: Yeah, I'm happy with it. I think it's very complimentary that the committee would put us as the Number 1 seed, that they recognize our hard work and all that. And now we just need to live up to it and prove that we are deserving of that.
