"I think Matt's done a great job. They are a much different team than a year ago, much better."

"They defended us well."

"The combination of Hammons and Haas is going to be something a lot of teams will have to deal with this year. It was difficult."

"Those kind of things usually jump up and bite you when that happens."

"We'll see how both of us fare throughout the year."

"I thought we adjusted and defended okay around the basket."

"I though the difference early in the game was their ability to go get an offensive rebound."

"We missed some foul shots at key times."

"He played really well and he's a good player. He kind of forces some matchup issues, even though Davis doesn't look to shoot a lot of three's he drives it well."

"We put our small forward on Edwards and our four-man on Davis in the first half."

"They defended us really well. They are physical, they ride you off screens, and we need Ralston and Cat to score a little more for us."

"Cat had some open looks, he missed some open shots. Ralston didn't have very many open ones. They did a good job of making Ralston work for it."

"We've got to kind of figure out how to score when our guards aren't scoring."
