We let them score a lot more than the last time we played them. It was one of those nights when we were reeling and didn't play to our ability. We were a step slow on defense everywhere.

We've been in a rut lately, and we decided to break the mold. We went into a full-court man-to-man defense all game to try something different. We changed up our substitution pattern and tried to run instead of rely on size. Our guys responded well.

We played smart basketball. We made too many mistakes in the first half, so we slowed down the game in the second half and didn't try to get into a running battle with them.

The biggest difference for us besides aggressive play was the free-throw line.

Caleb was on fire. He kept us in the game.

That was exciting. We've lost our last two close games, so to pull that one out is huge.

I'm not going to say I'm getting the monkey off ... I'm not saying it.

We wanted to pull away, but they had some key 3-pointers at the end.
