UW postgame comments

Here’s comments from UW players following their 61-54 loss to UCLA.

SCOTT SUGGS:

(On the team having good motion on the court) “We wanted to come in here and finish this season on a wining streak so we gave a lot of effort today. It was fun, I wish we could have given the fans a win.”

(On the team’s confidence going into the tournament) “I don’t think we lost any confidence today but we know we need to limit our turnovers. That was a big influence today, so I’m sure we’ll focus on that for the next couple of days.”

AZIZ N’DIAYE

(On what he liked about what the team did today and what they weren’t able to do.) “We came ready to play and they’re a good team. We battled pretty well against them and ended up coming up short because of negligence. We turned the ball over a couple too many times and that’s what made the difference.”

(On today’s challenges on matching up against UCLA) “They’re a good team, they push the ball hard and try to score off of the fast break. We did a good job getting back on difference but when we had turnovers they just capitalized. It’s hard to bounce back on those because it’s just a numbers game at that point. I think they were scoring a lot on turnovers, which made the difference.”

(On the last home game of his career) “We’ve seen a lot of wins here, and the dawg pack and all of our fans have been amazing throughout our whole careers here at UW. We wanted to win to finish everything right.”

(On this game dampering the team’s confidence going into the tournament) “I don’t think this game will affect our confidence at all because last night we pretty much knew everyone’s seeding in the Pac-12. We’re just going to watch a lot of film and look at the tournament as a new season. We’re going to go in with that mindset taking it one game at a time.”
