Charlotte coach Bobby Lutz talks about Louisville's 94-82 win over the 49ers Thursday night at Freedom Hall.

"It was obviously a very difficult night for us. I thought that Louisville was tremendous and I expected them to be that way with senior night and a great crowd. I was a little disappointed that we did not execute a little better against them. We knew that we had to play really well with everything that was on the line to win the game, but obviously we fell a little short of that."

"The little flurry at the end of the first half was huge. We were still hanging around - six down, four down, two down - staying with them. That little flurry put us down 13 points and made it very difficult to come back against a team as good as they are. They made a lot of shots. They really shot the ball extremely well which we knew they were capable of."

"You have to give them credit. They are terrific and they took us out of things that we liked to do. Their zones were effective. (Larry) O'Bannon was great. They played very well and they deserved to win."

"We lost O'Bannon in transition and they did a great job at getting to the corner. We try to do the same thing, and they do a great job. They have so many weapons and we tried zone, and even a little junk. It all just did not matter. He is having a great year and his career night this evening."
