Postgame Quotes

December 12, 2011- Matthew Knight Arena


Head Coach Dana Altman

Opening statement…

“If we could have stopped the game with six minutes to go I would have felt good. We let down on defense in the last six minutes and they had an eight point run.”

On the team’s progress…

“We are making progress slowly. It’s not as quickly as we want it to be. I don’t like the pace of the offense, it’s too slow. We have a tremendous amount of work to do. We have to get much more physical on the boards and the guards have to rebound more.”

On the balance of scorers on the team…

“We have a good balance. Our perimeter guys have good experience and we are trying to get it to Tony (Woods) and Olu (Ashaolu) more too.”

On Tyrone Nared’s injury…

“He is going to be out for awhile. We have to do an MRI tomorrow, but he is going to miss the next four games at least or more.”

Guard Garrett Sim

On Devoe Joseph…

“He has a lot of experience even though he has only played two games with us, he played at Minnesota – a top-tier team – and tonight he did a good job.”

On the team…

“This team has a lot of talent. We have Tony and Olu scoring on the inside, E.J. as a shooter and Johnny is making plays. No one is selfish out there and that leads to a lot of even scoring.”

Center Tony Woods

On Devoe Joseph…

“I was excited to see how Devoe would transition into our team and what he would add, he has added a lot.”

On him as a player…

“I bring size and athleticism to the table and every game I feel more comfortable to make a move or get a bucket.”

On the team…

“Any given night we can have anyone of us step up and play for the team.”
