It kind of feels like a huge weight off of you. It seems like for whatever reason, they've always have our number and it's been a long time since we've beaten them.

Andy Palmer
#Defense

He's by far the quickest guard we've faced this year, without a doubt. That was one of our weak spots defensively was guarding off the dribble. We had trouble with it early in the year. We thought we done a better job the second half.

#Doubt

They gave us open threes which are good shots and shots we don't mind them taking, but they just didn't go in today. We couldn't get in a flow, but you have to credit their defense. We had some decent looks that we just couldn't knock down.
