Head Coach Lute Olson Quotes


“I think the biggest thing obviously is defense. We have good quickness, but we don’t want to make people do things that they don’t want to do.”


“From a defensive standpoint, Mustafa (Shakur) was very active. Chris Rodgers was very active, in terms of rebounding and denying passes and forcing people out of their comfort zone.”


“On the boards Isaiah (Fox) did an excellent job.”


“I thought Mustafa (Shakur’s) line was a good one, with the boards, assists and steals. Steals don’t happen. Steals are great because you’re anticipating and you’re acting. When you look at the steals, with Chris (Rodgers) with six and Mustafa (Shakur) with five, I think that shows very good alertness on the defensive end.”


“We obviously still have a lot of work to do. What we wanted to do in the second half was put the guys together that have been the best in practice situations.”


“Jesus (Verdejo) put together a solid game for the blue team, except for the turnover situation. Part of that was because he was having to play at the point.”


“Ivan (Radenovic) anticipates plays very well. He gets a lot of steals. He’s an excellent outside shooter. He’s a great shooter. It gives us a totally different look when he’s in versus when Isaiah (Fox) is in.”


“Channing (Frye) shoots the ball well. His shooting has improved significantly. (Frye, Radenovic and Fox) are all good in their own right.”
