Arizona Head Coach Lute Olson Quotes
"I thought that this was a very good time for us to have the exhibition game. It is obvious that they have guys who can play. It was a good challenge for us."
"They shot 58 percent in the first half, but we started to play defense in the second half. We let them run whatever they wanted in the first half, but we did a much better job of pressuring the ball in the second. We made it difficult for them to get the first basket, and we did a better job of pressuring their three-point shooters."
"Channing (Frye) did a very good job, but there are still some things that he needs to do a little better defensively. He is doing a better job of sitting in the post, and he is making good progress."
"I thought that Dennis (Latimore) had a much better second half. He missed some shots, but he was more aggressive, and he is making really good progress."
"Kansas is an outstanding basketball team, and they are going to test us the way that we need to be tested. We have to be ready because it is going to be a big-time atmosphere."
