Post Game Quotes

How challenging is it to play a team you know nothing about?
It’s different. It’s really different, their press is different, they just play a different type of basketball. We’re just going to have to adjust to that through the tournament.

What was Venezuela doing to disrupt your offense?
They were being a little more physical than us and I think there were (setting) a lot of screens, there was a lot of help defense on their part so we couldn’t get really get into our flow. We weren’t making a lot of shots early, but we were making shots at the end, which is what we want.

What kind of adjustments were you making to combat that?
Keep running so we could wear them out so that by the third quarter came they’d be worn out. We just ran on them. Run, run, the whole game.
