On what the team needs to turn their play around:

“We have to share the ball better. We have to space the floor better. We have to run. We have to be ourselves. We cannot play like other people. We have to be a unit as a team. We have to spread the ball between each other. We have to defend at a high level all minutes of the game.”

On what the team was missing on defense:

“I’d say communication. We need to stick to the game plan. I thought we did a good job of scouting this team. We pretty much knew all their ashes and stuff, but we did not execute on the game plan. When there is a lot of athletes on the court you can kind of make up for mistakes. But, against a good team that is not good enough.”

On how Anthony Edwards handles the pressure put on him:

“I think he handles it pretty well. But, sometimes I’ll be worried about him. I’ll always check on him like, are you good? Are you going through something? Because I am here to talk to him if he needs it like a big brother. But, he carries himself pretty well. He deals with all the outside noise pretty well. I am shocked at the way he deals with it because it is a lot for him. He deals with it pretty well.”

On forcing 3-point shots and not getting to the bucket as much as you wanted to:

“I mean we work on catch-and-shoots and a couple of them were at the end of the buzzer. It was not really that. I was just not making them.”

On the locker room message after the game:

“We are going to fix it and come back and try to go win at Missouri.”

On teams defending you differently:

“Teams are trying to defend me differently. They are trying to take me out of the game and make other people score. I just got to find ways to help my team win. I thought I was playing really good defense. A lot of substitutions were made (in the second half) and Ole Miss gained its lead back.”

On what was missing on defense:

“Jordan Harris did not play as much in the first half and we need someone out there 6-5 defending. That is about it.”

On preventing teams from dominating the paint:

“It is hard. We do not have a true five. Jordan Harris is playing the four and guarding big dudes and I am guarding them as well. We just got to be tough and physical.”

On playing more minutes:

“I feel like Coach (Crean) is playing me good minutes. We just took a lost and we just got to get back and try to win at Missouri.”
