Bootleg Video: Pac-10 Tourney Post-Game

At the end of Stanford's third loss this year to Arizona, much of the post-game discussion surrounded the Wildcats' pressure and the Cardinal's inability to take care of the ball - resulting in 23 turnovers. Matt Haryasz again was double-teamed, upon which Lute Olson gave some comments. Chris Hernandez scored 20 points but took the loss upon his shoulders, clearly down and dejected.

Comments in the Staples Center press room gave us Lute Olson's thoughts on how and why to defend Matt Haryasz with double-teams, as well as the cumulative effect that Arizona defensive pressure had on Stanford in the late stages of the game.  Trent Johnson recognized the fatality of 23 turnovers, but rather than rip his players, chose to give as much credit as possible to Arizona.  After three games with three similar results, he can only conclude who is simply the better team.  We caught up with Chris Hernandez afterward, and he hung his head after what he felt was an individually disappointing performance (seven turnovers), and a loss that effectively ends Stanford's 11-year NCAA Tournament streak.
