I think with 12 to 13 minutes left, we stepped up our level of play. We were in a lull in the first half.

There were a lot of fouls called in the game. I think the officials made the calls they needed to call. We just didn't have any big guys left.

Hall is a big kid on the block. He sets up the inside-outside game, and Lon Morris has some good shooters.

Antonio Odom had a big game for us. What he did on defense helped us get a lot of cheap baskets. I told the team that they need to enjoy themselves. We needed to win, now enjoy it.

I don't know why Tyler has lost 10 straight. On film, they look good. It's just come down to one or two plays they haven't been able to make.

This wasn't like the San Jacinto game. We were closer there. We just need to do a better job of offensive execution.

When James got the three-point play off the tip, that was huge. Our guys never gave up.

I think the first half was our best defensive half of the season. I think our guys are starting to play extremely hard every time now. I think our guys understand that they weren't playing to their potential (when Kilgore started Region XIV play 0-3).

We knew what kind of prolific scorer he could be, and he's come along well. Some freshmen take longer to come around.
