Abdul Gaddy: “We didn’t scrap enough tonight”
Here’s video (above) of post-game comments from Abdul Gaddy following Washington’s 70-52 defeat at No. 12 Arizona.
(On coach Lorenzo Romar’s reaction to the game) “Coach was just trying to get up fired up. He gets caught up in the game and he’s an emotional guy; he wears his emotions on his sleeves. We were trying to fire ourselves up, they were just playing well and coach was trying to give us life. That’s what a good coach tried to do, get his team fired up and try to turn it around.”
(General game thoughts) “We didn’t scrap enough tonight. Arizona was rebounding and pushing and we weren’t organized on transitions. I think on the half court we did well, but we let them get too many fast breaks and rebounds.”
(What was the difference in the game?) “Arizona is an explosive team. They hit us in the last five minutes of the first half and in the first two minutes of the second half they took their lead from eight to 14. They just took off. We let them get going and it was all downhill from there. We need to be able to get locked in for a full 40 minutes on guard and start guarding better.”
