UK-USC: Tubby Smith Quotes

Quotes from Kentucky's head coach following the loss to South Carolina ...

Kentucky Head Coach Tubby Smith

"First, you've got to congratulate South Carolina. Coach Odom had his team ready to play. They controlled the tempo for the most part, I thought. It seemed like they wanted it more. Our kids fought back, but we couldn't seem to convert. You're not going to beat many people when you turn it over 21 times. At 50-45, I thought we had some momentum, but we couldn't get shots to go down. I thought we didn't execute. Our screening was poor. When you have a game like we had with Georgia, you worry that some of those things are going to carry over. You hope that you've corrected some of those problems, but obviously, we did not. You could see they (South Carolina) were hungry. They were going to challenge everything. They came up with some great blocks and defensive plays. South Carolina went after every shot. They weren`t going to give us any easy baskets. "
