The Team Georgia Game

Nov. 7, 2004

 

Head Coach Lute Olson Quotes

 

“Anytime we get the opportunity to play in exhibition games, the main benefit will come from the breakdown of the tapes.”

 

“I thought Channing (Frye) was a big factor on the glass for us, and defensively he did a good job of challenging from the inside.”

 

“We’re a different team when Mustafa (Shakur) is on the court. Salim (Stoudamire) did a good job of running the point when Mustafa (Shakur) was out.”

 

“Overall, I though defensively we did a good job. There were some guys we knew coming into the game (for Georgia) that were three-shooters. We have to do a better job of converging on the ball when it is driven.”

 

“With Team Georgia, it’s obvious there’s a lot of experience there, and that will pay off for us. If we made a mistake they did a good job of taking advantage of us.”

 

“We’re the victim of our quick shots. If we haven’t moved the defense we should be taking those shots, unless it’s someone who can consistently knock them down.”

 

Chris Rodgers came in and gave us solid shots off the bench.”

 

“You can see the veterans have a huge advantage over the new guys. We wanted a chance to see the younger guys play.”

 

Daniel Dillon did a nice job defensively and made good decisions with the ball. He’s far and away our best guard defender. He and Mustafa (Shakur) are the best guard rebounders we have. Daniel goes hard on the boards and makes a difference. There is not a time the ball’s up that he’s not after it.”

 

“The thing I was pleased with about Salim (Stoudamire) is he’s communicating a lot more. Defensively, he was voted by his teammates Defensive Player of the Year the last three years. People don’t realize how tough he can be defensively. It’s a whole lot better to have him in the shooting guard spot. With his shooting ability, we need to let Mustafa (Shakur) create the opening and deliver the ball. Salim is going to have some good shooting numbers.”
