Utah-USC Upstate Postgame Quotes
Utah Head Coach Jim Boylen
"We accomplished something tonight. We have to get better every night out. We have to get better defensively. We have to be a team that wins games when we don't play well offensively."
"I like it when we play through a possession, get a rebound and run. I want 'em to run every time. We're the Runnin' Utes."
"I think my team has to feed off my energy. I'm passionate about my guys, and I'm passionate about the game."
Utah Junior Guard Tyler Kepkay
"I think we're getting better every time we play."
"A guy fell on my left ankle. I'll ice it and be fine."
"We had a couple lapses and some turnovers. That may be because we were so amped up and ready to play."
"If we can run and get a lay-up it makes the game more fun for the players and the fans."
USC Upstate Head Coach Eddie Payne
"This was a chance for our young guys to experience some things they've never experienced before."
"Utah is a good defensive team and spreads the court very well. We had no margin for error tonight and our kids haven't seen that to this point."
"We are still learning and adjusting and we will continue to improve."
