"I think Book has pretty much played like tonight almost every night," Brad Brownell said. "I think Milt's had some nights where he hasn't shot it as well, but I thought he did a better job of finishing some plays around the basket."
Damarcus Harrison, a sophomore, will begin his two-year mission with the Church of Latter Day Saints after the school year ends. He had 11 in the 68-61 loss.
"He scored it better, which was good to see…I thought he was aggressive," Brownell said.
Third game without K.J. McDaniels…"We missed K.J. a little bit, just because we don't have another wing shooter, another scorer." - Brownell
"It just hurts. Sometimes, he comes across gets a block, gets a few rebounds, hits in a few 3s. Just the pure athleticism and his length out there, it's just killing not having him." - Jennings
"With K.J. hurt, even now these last three games, we can't go small." - Brownell
More from the head coach…"We didn't make enough 3s again. We haven't shot the ball from 3 well the last three games. Offensively, besides that, I thought our efficiency was pretty good." - Brownell
"Defensively, we had a hard time guarding them in the second half. I thought they did a better job of attacking. I thought we got whistled for a few fouls that probably got our guys a little tentative. I thought some of the free-throws gave them some confidence. That, combined with some missed layups and some missed 3-point shots that you've got to make when teams are packing it in, that makes for a long night." - Brownell
