I think the carryover is that the pickup games, when we're not present, are better. They're talking about principles defensively.
I do think he needs to come out of the games sometime even though I never take him out. He would be better.
That was the good of Jean Felix. I think in his last two games he was 2-of-15 from the field. Today's some of the best we've seen from him. He did a great job shooting the ball.
That was the good (side). There was no question. The last two games he was something like 2-for-15 from the field. But for us to be good, we have to give him the shots when he's open. You just have to take the bad with the good. He had one of those performances that's phenomenal.
I think the carryover is that the pickup games, when we're not present, are better, ... They're talking about principles defensively.
We're going to win, 100 percent. We've got a lot of work left to do to reach our goals. We're not going to take our foot off the gas pedal at all.
It just legitimizes our conference. We always want to bark about how good our league is, yet at some point you have to back it up. I think our whole league did great in the tournament.
We never got into a good rhythm. Defensively, they did some things and took some of our strengths away. We never seemed to get our aggressiveness back they way we need to around the basket.
To be honest, I think Kentucky's depth wore us down a little bit. I sensed we got a little tired. I think they were a little fresher than we were and that's just who we are right now. There's nothing we can do about that.
By the way, Jerry I'm, looking for some faxes. Every day, I'm hunting on the floor, everywhere I can look.
We've shortened our practices. We don't really do anything to prevent injury, except doing minimal contact drills, but other than that we're just trying to be smart about how we go about practice.
He's really smart, really quick and I think he can beat you in different ways. He's such a good foul shooter that when he's fouled, it's hard to not count those as two points. ... We want the ball in his hands late in the game.
I thought the game was over. I'm a complete idiot. I was jumping up and down like a fool out there. I thought Gee's basket won the game for us.
I thought that was just a great gesture on Evan Brock's part.
His last two games he was 2-for-15 from the field. He really concentrated on his shooting. For us to be good you can't take the shots away from him. He got loose against the zone and made a couple of shots, he got off to a real good start and I thought that was the key.
The difference tonight, I thought, was the defense in the first 15 minutes of the second half.
I thought I was in for another Patrick Sparks like last year the way he was shooting it.
I thought Alonzo gave us great energy, great lift off the bench. He did a lot of things well tonight. Sometimes on those 'Senior Nights,' somebody else always emerges. Tonight, it was Alonzo.
He got loose against the zone and made a couple of shots. He got off to a real good start and I thought that was the key.
I think teams have done a good job of defending him a little better. And he's not Superman. He's human. He's going to struggle from time to time. That's just part of it. He'll be fine.
As coaches, you feel like politicians this time of year. We've beaten the top three teams in the (SEC) East and the top three teams in the West, and I don't know too many other teams that have done that. The bottom line is we need to keep winning.
This will be the most freshmen on the floor that this series has seen in a long time.
We have to regroup quickly. We don't have time to go through a lot of growing pains with this situation. We've got to get to where we need to be fast.
The fun thing about our team right now is I think each guy is making key contributions at key times. You can go through everybody on our roster. They're all making key plays. That's all you can ask of them.
Davidson stepped up and made those four free throws at the end. We made some key plays at key times.
