Some thoughts from Isaiah Thomas

As I mentioned after the game last night, had a chance to talk with a lot of the players afterward for what may be the last time for a while. So I’ll dole out some of those quotes over the next day or so.
First, Isaiah Thomas with a few thoughts on the game and next year.
Thomas said the drive in the final seconds was simply part of what the Huskies have done all season. There’s been some discussion that the Huskies should have called time out there. As Gonzaga showed in the nightcap, you don’t need to call a time out in that kind of situation to be successful.
“That rebound in transition, that’s something that we do,” he said. “I seen an opening and I shot it, it just didn’t drop. It wasn’t like it was a bad shot.”
On the blocks with about a minute left, Thomas said: “He’s long, you think he’s not there and he is. Me and Quincy (Pondexter) were being aggressive, stuff we did the whole game.”
On looking ahead to next season, Thomas said: “We’re going to work hard and hopefully be better next year. As long as we work hard, we are going to be as good as we were this year, maybe even better.”
And on playing with Abdul Gaddy, Thomas said: “He’ll be more like a Venoy (Overton), be a set-up guy, and I’ll be more off the ball, kind of like JD (Justin Dentmon) this year. It’ll probably make things easier for me.”
Not that Thomas said he wants to completely give up point guard duties. “I like the ball in my hands, too.”
