|"In the second half, I thought you have to congratulate them. They made some big-time shots. A couple of shots we even wanted them to shoot, but they went in. We didn't execute as well as we wanted to down the stretch. We had some opportunities, whether it was free throws or good shots, but didn't make them. It sort of snowballed. You've got a one- or two- point game, then we had a couple of crucial turnovers, they made some shots, we had a tough time chasing those guys around the screens, a couple of times they got some open looks from three and made them. I think the ability for them to shoot the ball in the hole in the second half was the whole story of the game, along with our inability to shoot it in.
"Our defense wasn't nearly as active early in the second half as it was in the first half. We had some turnovers ourselves on the break. We had some opportunities on the secondary or the primary in the open court. We were forcing some turnovers, but weren't getting anything out of it.
"I thought (Nick Collison) competed awfully hard, and fought for the entire basketball game. He faced a little more pressure coming back into Iowa, but I thought he did some good things.
"You know, if you shoot 42% on the road, most of the time you're not going to win if the other team is any good at all. I told them they'd better not feel sorry for themselves and not hang their heads. We've got a lot of basketball left to play, and we've got to go back to work and see if we can get better."
