Video: Lorenzo Romar’s postgame comments

[do action="brightcove-video" videoid="2228424395001"/]

Here’s a video (above) and postgame comments from coach Lorenzo Romar after Washington’s 80-77 overtime loss to Oregon in the quarterfinals of the Pac-12 men’s basketball tournament.

(On the outcome of the game) “Obviously, it was a very hard-fought game. Oregon did a good job of applying pressure on us for the entire game. We had our chances down the stretch and didn’t capitalize on them. When you have that small window against a good team like Oregon, you have to jump through it or it can close on you and it closed on us.”

(On his message to the team) “We didn’t know if that was our last game or not. That’s what I told them.”

(On the final possession during regulation) “There were some huge gaps. You put something out there and you always want to see how the opponent is going to defend it. You check one and that’s OK. So you check two and that’s OK. It’s exactly the way we want it. We just didn’t put it up to the basket. That’s what we wanted to do. We wanted to get C.J. Wilcox into isolation so we could go to the basket and draw a foul. We certainly had our chances.”

(On why Oregon has had UW’s number this season) “Number one, they’re good. They were one weekend away from winning this league. We were six plays from finishing. They’re a good team. They were better than us this year.
