Wichita State Shockers Quotable
“Hopefully we’ll be a little smarter and less apt to be called for fouls,” WSU coach Gregg Marshall said. “We got called for quite a few that game and a lot of them we brought on ourselves by just putting our hands on people when we shouldn’t.”
Cincinnati Bearcats Quotable
"We got the ball point-blank around the rim nine times and didn't score," UC coach Mick Cronin said. "They finished around the rim and we didn't. We outshot Houston from the three-point line (8-for-21 for UC, 7-for-21 for Houston), you would think we'd probably have a chance to win. Not many teams outshoot them from the three-point line. They did a better job finishing around the rim than we did."
