Colorado State at Utah State post-game quotes
Jan. 21, 2017

Recap |  Box Score |  Notes

USU head coach Tim Duryea
"Compliments to Colorado State. They played tremendously hard and tough. We played very young, very immature. We play some young players and most of the time they haven't played like young players. Across the board, not just the young players, all played very young.”

On the offensive struggles...
"The first half they were really taking 3-point looks away. We drove it and couldn't finish it at the rim. We must have missed at least four layups in the first half. When we did get open 3s we didn't make them. When we got fouled, we didn't do a good job there either. We looked like a young, immature team tonight. Most of the time those young guys have not looked that way at all. Colorado State did a very good job of playing with a lot of purpose and they had a good game plan. When we got stops, we didn't finish the possession with a rebound when we went to help, we didn't rotate. There were loose balls where the ball was right there and instead of picking it up we were trying to run too much. There were a lot of young immature plays on both ends, in both halves."

Senior wing Jalen Moore
"It's another tough loss. Frustrating. We got down in a hole in the first half and couldn't cut it back to single digits until the end. It makes it hard to come back with so little time left."

Senior guard Shane Rector
"We fought hard in the second half to comeback. It was too little, too late. From the jump ball we've got to come out with that aggressiveness.”

Colorado State head coach Larry Eustachy
"We had some good days leading up to today. We're maturing an inch at a time and I thought we showed great poise up until the very end, but what a win. I told them that they (Utah State) were going to make a run and the crowd was going to get into it, then we had to overcome that and we did. We made some baskets and got some big-time loose balls and rebounds. It was a circus out there for the last thirty seconds, but we learned a lot about tempo. We showed a lot more patience and dictated the tempo. I'm really proud of this team."
