A few post-game comments

Here are a few quotes from the Huskies:
ELSTON TURNER:
“It is crazy. It’s what I’ve always dreamed of. We played hard and the defense was incredible. This was a team effort.”
LORENZO ROMAR:
“That is a very, very good 13 sed. Very good 13 seed. And I give our guys a lot of credit today for being a team. If we were not a team today that game would have been a lot more difficult. What I mean by ‘a team’ defensively today I felt like it was maybe one of our best performances in that were potential mismatches around the floor but it never got that way because it was as if everyone was tied to a rope together. Everyone was helping everyone. Everyone on this team today sold out and gave themselves for the cause of the team.”
QUINCY PONDEXTER:
“I knew they weren’t the same physically as me. My teammates did a great job of finding me in a lot of spaces and helping me create.”
JON BROCKMAN:
“If feels great just knowing we came in and were focused more than anything. We were ready for the game today and came out and most everyone contributed in a positive way. The first one is always kind of a monkey off your back. And it’s good to get that done and over with and you can start really concentrating and getting ready to get a little deeper in the tournament.”
Also, here’s our first-run game story with the nuts and bolts of what happened.
