On whether he can remember a game where shots wouldn’t fall as much as against Missouri …

“Honestly I don’t remember. I feel like there’s a couple of them, but I don’t remember right now.”

On what contributed to poor shooting …

“I feel like we were just taking a lot of one-pass and quick shots. We could have gotten some easier shots, but we didn’t and I feel like we played great defense but we just needed to get better ball movement and stuff like that.”

On what they need to improve on offense facing quality defenses in the next four games …

“It’s just making better reads. I feel like if we make better reads, we’ll find easier ways to score. We’ve been working on that the past couple weeks in practice, but I feel like we’re going to be all right at it.”

On whether they see in film that they need to share the ball more …

“Yeah, of course we see it. That’s a big part of us right now. I feel like if we start to pass the ball a little bit more, it’s going to be hard for teams to guard us.”

On why they struggle to make that adjustment in games …

“I feel like it’s just harder for us to make that adjustment in games because we’ve been so used to getting easy layups versus different teams throughout the year. We just gotta adjust and get better the next time out.”

On whether the season has been more frustrating than he expected …

“We’re honestly just learning from each loss we take and just trying to focus on the next game and trying to get a win. We knew we weren’t going to be perfect. We’re just trying to win every game from now on.”

On whether it gets frustrating at times …

“That’s basketball. You can’t really win them all, unless—I don’t think any team has done that ever. We’re just trying right now to be focused, just keep doing what we’re doing and just try to win every game, like I said.”

On what they need to do against Tennessee …

“Just be more aggressive on the defensive end and just look for better reads on the offensive end and I feel like we’ll be in great shape to win the game.”

On whether his knee is healthy …

“Yeah, I’m fine.”

On whether defense can spark offense …

“We just look for energy on the defensive end. If we get that out of a steal or a quick rebound, we try to get out in transition and make easy plays for each other.”

On what he remembers about the first game vs. Tennessee …

“We lost. We got out-toughed in the second half and I feel like we just gotta bring it to them and play the whole 40 minutes and come out with a W.”

On how nice it is to be back home …

“It’s great to get back in front of our home crowd after Saturday. We just have to come out and try to get a win in front of them.”
