Opening comments:
“Our guys came out tonight and played hard. The blame falls on me. They scored a couple of times, but they also turned it over. You do that the entire game and you start to find holes and breakdowns. We defended the other night very well. The amount of ball screens they had, it backs your pressure off a little bit. We didn’t finish the play. I need to look at the film, but I imagine they scored 14 points at the end of the shot clock where we didn’t defend the entire shot clock and then there was a breakdown and they would score a bucket. And that probably was the difference in the ball game. We were showing too long. We were staying too long with the ball. We didn’t need to do that. It was something wetalked about but obviously I didn’t emphasize it enough. We were staying with the ball screens too long. We need to do something else.”
On Albany’s last drive
“We didn’t get in front of it. I think it was pretty much that simple. We didn’t stop the ball. They were switching. We just didn’t keep it in front of us.
On Scott Suggs
“Scott will hopefully be okay. He was hit pretty good, but he doesn’t have a major headache. We’re not sure if he has a concussion or not. He remembered what happened, and a lot of time in those cases people don’t have a memory. He brings experience to the team, but we needed to be better.”
On a ‘lesson on defense’ early in the season
“Again, I think our guys were trying. Again, you have to place the blame on me. They did what they were asked to do. The one thing we did ask them to do was not stay on the ball screens so long. We talked about that. But we have to talk until they learn, and that goes back to the teacher. Which is me.”
On losing early in the season for postseason
“If we lose two or three, yes (it would be a problem). We can go on from here and not stub our toe like this again. Lesson learned early in the year, but if this is a recurring theme then it’s a problem. It would be a big blow to us down the road.”
On the difference between the first half and the second half
“Our guys seemed dazed out there. We weren’t ourselves for some reason.”
