Utah State Head Coach Stew Morrill…
“We didn’t play great, we just did barely enough to win tonight. We made some big shots when we needed to. We took care of the ball, but they really had us out of sorts at the start of the second half. They did a great job of switching their defenses. We’d get halfway into a man play and they’d go zone. I told Cameron (Dollar) after the game that they did a really nice job of causing problems for us. It’s one of those games where a couple of guys made some big plays. Kyisean (Reed) obviously had a great night. He got some huge offensive rebounds. Spencer (Butterfield) and Marcel (Davis) each hit a big shot and all of a sudden we were up eight.

“We’ll take it and try and learn from it, see if we can get better. There were a lot of areas of concern, but you’ve got to win a game sometimes when you don’t play great. They’re the reason we didn’t play great. They did a good job.”

Senior Forward Kyisean Reed…
“I came out trying to get deflections and steals. I think we came out and ended it pretty well. We picked it up and got opportunities on the break. Sometimes it has to go like that where offense doesn’t go right but you have to keep playing defense. I just tried to pick it up on defense. We had guys make plays at the right times. We didn’t play our best and they did a great job of masking defense and getting us confused on offense. I give them credit for how they came in here and played the game.”

Seattle Head Coach Cameron Dollar…
“We had a couple of miscommunications and they got some wide-open shots. Their players made plays down the stretch. You just can’t turn it over 18 times. That’s too many opportunities you don’t give yourself when you’re playing well in every other area of the game. We have to find a way to get to the line more than nine times. Deshaun (Sunderhaus) did what he can do. He can score on the block and did a good job of that, but that doesn’t mean anything if you aren’t winning. We have to get that done.”
