Video: UW players talk about WSU

Washington players Abdul Gaddy, Scott Suggs and Desmond Simmons talked about last week’s loss at Connecticut, Saturday’s Pac-12 opener at Washington State and UW’s rocky performance in non-conference games.

— When asked how the team is doing going into conference play, Gaddy was unsure. But he he said the team is “getting better” and “wants to improve on our weaknesses.”

— Gaddy said Pullman is a tough place to play. “Their crowd is a little more antsy. They say a little bit more. Worse things than other teams. It’s always a little more difficult going in there than other places.”

— On last week’s 61-53 loss at Connecticut, Gaddy said: “We just couldn’t knock down shots.”

— On Washington State, Simmons said: “They like to run a lot through Brock Motum. I feel like he’s the focal point of their offense. That’s pretty much what their game plan is.”

— Suggs talked about Washington’s emphasis on the defensive end. “One of the things we’ve been working on is making sure we’re guarding on the ball as a team. We got a man on the ball, but we’re guarding the ball as a team and we got four other guys helping that guy on the ball. That’s the biggest thing we’ve been working on.”
