We keep in contact with each other and know a little of each others tendencies. But we're competitors though, so when we get between the lines (tonight) we're both going to want to win and move our programs to the next level.
We didn't make shots, and we didn't make free throws. That was the key. To win championships you have to be able to make shots, and we didn't do that. And the other thing, we gave up too many second opportunities on the boards.
It's certainly disappointing because that was our main goal coming into this season, to go to the NCAA Tournament. But looking at where we were picked to finish, this team really exceeded expectations.
We didn't hit our free throws the entire game. That's the difference. That's the first thing you notice.
They took us out of our game, completely out of our game. There were lots of very hard fouls. Lots and lots of very hard fouls.
