Comments from Bill Self
"The game never had a lot of rhythm for us. We tried hard. It seemed like when we tried hard, they caught a break or two. Bucknell played great."
"We watched a ton of tape. We knew that their strengths could expose us, if we allowed it to. And we did. "
"It's crushing. I didn't even really know what to tell the team afterwards. These guys have worked awfully hard to put themselves in this position and to see it end like this - is a big blow that no one anticipated."
"Tonight, I thought we could piece it together but it just didn't work out."
"I feel terrible for the seniors. It is a sad day, sad game, but these guys should be proud and hold their heads high."
