Arizona Head Coach Lute Olson Quotes
"Oregon is a very good basketball team. They are a very well-balanced team, and they have people that can hurt you. They have four to five guys on the perimeter who can handle the ball and shoot the ball. Their inside guys know their roles, and they do a good job of setting screens. They are just a better team than we are, and that's pretty obvious."
"We battled hard, but even with Luke (Walton), I don't know how much of a difference it would have made. We just have to keep working. We have to play every possession with urgency, urgency on defense and urgency on offense."
"We have guys making a cut, and then they don't continue to make any more cuts. We have to keep making cuts. We are having a miserable time of trying to get any continuity out of it."
"We did a better job of getting the ball inside in the second half. We have to step it up inside and make ourselves more available. Our inside guys are posting up with their arms instead of posting up with their feet. Our inside guys need to do a better job of getting open inside and taking the pressure off of our perimeter shooters."
