Coach’s Quote:

Matt Gordon:  “That first half (of your first national tournament game) is always awkward-especially offensively.  But defensively, we really buckled down and got stops, and took control by helping us to go up by 6 or 8 points.  That helped us to relax, and you saw it in the fact that we shot 54% from the field, and held them to 31%.  You’re going to win most of your games when that happens.”
