Quick post-game notes, quotes

Back from the locker room, where the general theme was one of satisfaction at getting past the opening round game, while knowing that tougher tests now await.
“We probably turned the ball over far too many times and were a little bit sloppy but we did a good job in the second half of sharing the basketball and converting,” said UW coach Lorenzo Romar. “Some guys stepped up and did really well. We’re just excited to advance and play again.”
One reporter wondered if the early start time made for a weird atmosphere and a tough game to play.
“Kind of it did,” said Isaiah Thomas. “But we’ve just got to come out better. We came out the second half and did better but we had way too many turnovers.”
Romar added that he was pleased the way the Huskies played defense, noting that three-pointers were a strength of Stanford’s and that “we did a pretty good job contesting those threes.”
Romar was also happy that no Husky played more than Jon Brockman’s 32 minutes, with everyone else at 27 or less, which could help winning three games in three days.
“We tried to substitute that way and fortunately for us we do have a pretty deep bench and we can go to our bench and get guys some (rest),” Romar said. “We’ll see if it pays off.”
Also of note, Thomas’ nine rebounds were a career high. All came on the defensive end and he noted that most came off long rebounds off of missed threes.
