Head Coach Ray Giacoletti
"The first half wasn't pretty, but we bought in and played defense. It doesn't matter how well you perform on the offensive end as long as you play good defense, and we did that tonight."
"We were a little better offensively in the second half, although we had a tough time holding onto the ball. Our defense wasn't as good in the second half, but we picked up our offense."
"(Lance) Allred has vastly improved since the last time I saw him play, but (Andrew) Bogut did a good job defensively. Offensively we need to knock down the parameter shots when teams double down on Bogut and we struggled with that tonight."
"I was very pleased with the defensive end of the floor tonight. Bogut did a good job defending Allred and our help-side played well. We did a good job adjusting defensively and I was happy with our overall defensive performance."
