POSTGAME QUOTES

UTA Head Coach Scott Cross

"I think our turnovers, to me, that is the things that stick out. We got stops defensively, especially in that first half. We took a couple of bad shots, especially in that last 10 minutes of the second half and our defense dropped a little. They got a bunch of offensive rebounds in the second half that cost us. We just didn't get the stops down the stretch. I think they scored on 10 straight possessions down the stretch. It is hard to win a basketball game when that happens. We defended pretty much the entire game, until toward the end. At that point, we just couldn't get a stop.

"(Hitting big shots in the final minutes) I guess that's a consolation. Hopefully, these guys can bounce back and we play our best basketball at Georgia Southern. I thought we did a pretty good job, but didn't quite execute like we needed to against their zone. We were much better against Arkansas State. They have a very good zone. I thought we could pick it apart, and we did a couple of times. Over the long haul, we didn't get enough easy baskets. We need to be stronger finishing around the basket."
