KEY QUOTE

Coach Craig Robinson - Tonight was really good. I couldn’t be happier with the way we played this game. The final point spread doesn’t really show how well we were playing defense. Our guys did everything we asked. We wanted them to be tough and aggressive on defense and to execute on offense and we managed to do that."
