Recap |  Final Stats |  Notes

On FIU's shooting:

"They are a good team. They have three really good scorers that have scored well for them all year long. We were able to limit [Adrian] Diaz and I was happy with that. It is just that the other two had really good games, in particular [Donte] McGill. He got them off to such a hot start. I think there is a combination of a lot of things. I think some of it was effort, but a lot of it was execution. It can be a foot here in there with positioning and where we need to be. We need to retool and get better."

On not getting off to a good start:

"We definitely want to get off to a good start, especially on the road because the home team feels very confident and comfortable in their environment. We need to do a better job in the beginning of the game to get stops and turn them into good offensive plays."

On the positives:

"I was really happy for Merrill Holden. He had 11 points and six rebounds in 20 minutes. He is starting to play more like he was in October before he got hurt. I really liked what Jy'lan Washington did in his short amount of time. I need to find him more minutes. With that type of energy and aggressiveness he had defensively, he can help us. I thought Dayon [Griffin] had a nice floor game. We had some really good defensive possessions for 30 seconds, but then we broke down. We just need to get better and finish plays."
