Lorenzo Romar didn’t sugarcoat the Huskies’ inconsistent effort following a 75-67 win over Jackson State.
Admittedly he’s a glass-half full guy, but the ever optimistic Husky coach struggled to find many positives to claim.
Opening statement: “We won. I looked at the score several times when the horn sounded. I saw the score, so we won.”
On turnovers: “We turned the ball over several times and when that happened, all of a sudden, we did not contest shots like we were doing the first ten minutes. We were doing a pretty good job contesting their shots and it all kind of coincided. The reason [for the turnovers] was because we didn’t take care of the ball, didn’t capitalize on some good opportunities. We didn’t contest as many shots, we didn’t do a good job of boxing out in the first half. [Jackson State] got second shots – I believe they had 34 at half time. 19 of them were off of second chance points and our turnovers. That’s how they scored over half of their points. That’s on us.”
On the second half: “We did a better job on the second half. They only scored two points off of second chances and they had five offensive rebounds. We were better in the second half. The big offensive rebound we gave up was at the end down the stretch where we didn’t box out. But it didn’t surprise me because we did a better job on the board the second half.”
On this game compared to other games: “I don’t think we’re back to square one. We took a step back from the other game the other night, that’s for sure.”
