Trevor Mbakwe | Power Forward

On coming close, but not pulling it out:
"We played good basketball for the first 35 to 36 minutes of the game, and the last four minutes have been killing us these last 10 games or so. We are just not making shots."

On getting out-rebounded in the second half:
"We didn't do a good job boxing out. We played strong in the first half, but they came out and beat us in the second half. A lot of the times we fouled them and that changed the game, too."

Rodney Williams | Small Forward

On what can be done to become a better team:
"I just think we need to be more calm and patient when making decisions. We usually find a way to turn the ball over or leave a guy wide open for three."

On his confidence:
"My teammates are confident in me. I just need to be confident in myself. I need to be aggressive the whole game and not just one half."
