VIDEO: Dejounte Murray Post-Game - Oregon

Dawgman.com's Kim Grinolds spoke to Washington freshman guard Dejounte Murray after the Huskies lost to Oregon 83-77 in a Pac-12 Tournament semifinal Thursday afternoon in Las Vegas. Murray finished the game with 13 points, nine rebounds, seven assists and two steals.

On how tough of a loss it was “Really tough because we had the game the whole game. I feel like we came out and punched them first and took a lead and stayed consistent in the first half. In the second half we came out a little slow and then we picked it back up. We just couldn’t get a lead towards the end. We cut it to two and they ended up getting a layup and a foul and it came down to free throws to them, and they made their free throws, and they got the win. It really just hurts bad knowing our chances.”

 

On Oregon “They’re really good. Great coaching staff. Really good players. They have everything you need in a team. Best of luck to them.”

 

On similarities between this game and the first game against Oregon “Every game is different. I’m just speechless. They played good. They executed their offense. They crashed the boards. They’re consistent. I feel like we took some plays off going to the boards as a whole team.”

On getting nine rebounds  “I was just going to the boards. Some days I take some off. When I go to the boards I know I’m capable of going to the boards and getting rebounds with my length. That doesn’t mean anything – we lost. That doesn’t mean anything to me.”

 

On what the team has left to prove “We just have to go out and try to win whatever we’re in – NIT.”
