"They practiced hard this week. It is a tough road, especially when you are playing a team with Syracuse's experience. They are a good team. We are going to get better. We have guys who care. We have struggled a little bit putting teams away, so we need to keep finding that way to make key stops, make key baskets."
"We didn't have enough momentum to put it over the top. We have to have some individual soul searching to find out how much time we are going to spend out of practice working individually. We have to have some guys a little hungrier to spend that extra time on the court."
"You can't go 4-for-21 from the three and feel good about the shot selection. But we have to make them, it's not like we can stop shooting them. I would like them to get the ball in the basket by getting to the rim."
"It is just a matter of time before the shots starts falling. Some of the shots we are taking are shots we really don't want. We could have gotten a lot better looks, but we could have had some better looks."
"We look at every game as a must win. You never want to think about any game as if we can lose one. We need to analyze this tonight, take the good with the bad, and get the next one."
"We needed to keep James outside, we didn't want let him get into the lane. When they did look for the jump shot, we got out on them. Early we let them get a couple transition baskets, but the second half we were much better."
