Post-Game Quotes

Recap |  Final Stats |  Notes

Opening statement:

“I thought that we had some really good stretches of playing good defense. We had possessions where we got several stops in a row, but I do think we turned the ball over too much. We had some sloppy play. Some of that were really new lineups that have not played together very much in conference road games. I do think we grew tonight. I thought our two freshmen, Jy’lan [Washington] and Derric [Jean], both played big minutes. Merrill is gaining more experience and I thought Jacobi Boykins made great plays as did Alex Hamilton.”

On others stepping up in place of Erik McCree:

“I thought Jy’lan Washington did some really nice things defensively. He executed the game plan exactly the way we wanted him to. I think Merrill and Derric’s points filled in for Erik’s absence. They did not go outside themselves. They had some opportunities and they delivered.”

On stopping UTSA’s backcourt:

“I thought we did a nice job. We held them below their collective average. We did give one of their post players more opportunities, but that was part of the game plan to see if he could outpace the other guys. Our team executed the game plan the way we wanted to defensively.”
