Oregon State coach Craig Robinson after UW’s 87-81 win

Here’s postgame comments from Oregon State coach Craig Robinson after Washington’s 87-81 win.

(Opening Statement) “This feels like the best team we have brought up here. I like the fact that we didn’t have many turnovers, but we just let them score in the paint too much. That’s something we usually rule the day on, but today we didn’t.”

(What was it about Williams-Goss that was affecting you guys a little bit?) “He’s a good player.”

(Why do you think they were so successful in the paint?) “We had the height advantage, but they have some really good post players. They executed their game plan very well and we were really focused on C.J.. We have to give up something, and we thought we could weather the inside.”

(On the ten-minute stretch in the second half when they turned it around) “I through we took a couple of quick shots and they got run outs. We had done a really good job of getting back on defense. But when you take a quick shot, especially a three and you miss, people can run out on you and that’s what I thought happened.”

(On the foul trouble) “It didn’t think it hurt us that much. I thought our guys were playing well, given how physical the game was. That’s the good thing about having so many frontcourt players. We had a lot of options. I don’t think that was it. I think in that one stretch there in the second half, I thought they executed better than we did. But I was not disappointed in our guys. I thought we fought hard, I thought we did what our game plan called for. We just missed a couple of shots, and they are shots that we have been making. We shot 35% tonight, and we shoot well over that we just didn’t do that tonight.”

(On Devon Collier playing well) “It was great to see him back in action. It is fantastic to have a weapon like that come off the bench.”
