Head Coach Larry Krystkowiak
Feelings after the game
"I’m proud of the guys, they really put forth a great effort tonight, and they played hard. "We know what we need to do and we will clean that up. We were competitive on the road in our first Pac-12 game of the year. It's on to the next one and I'm a little disappointed, not frustrated. We will tinker with some things and we'll get back in the saddle tomorrow. That's the good thing about this conference. You have another chance to prove yourself.
"Wash was tremendous. He was locked in tonight for us offensively from the beginning. He did a great job defensively and would have loved to see the exclamation point there at the end and win the game. He put us on his shoulders and carried us with a number of blocked shots as well.
On the team's defense
"It was a little difficult, We switched a lot of the pick-and-rolls, so we had smaller guys on their big people. It’s one of the choices that we made and that we have to live with. I was happy with the defense. We held them to their lowest point total in this building."
Senior Jason Washburn
"This hurts. To lose a game like this that we feel we should’ve won really hurts. I don’t know. We have to go back and look at the film, see what more we could’ve done. Right now, it’s hard."
What needs to improve
"We need to probably do a little better offensively. We had some questionable shots but that's the nature of basketball, especially on the road. We have to keep fighting like we did tonight. But we made mistakes tonight, or else we would be here talking in a little better circumstance."
