Boise State at Utah State post-game quotes (12/28/16)
Dec. 28, 2016

Recap |  Box Score |  Notes

Utah State Head Coach Tim Duryea
"Obviously an extremely frustrating finish. Probably the most frustrating thing I've ever seen in coaching college basketball is when you can't get a rebound off of a missed free throw. Multiple times they had one guy on the line and we couldn't come up with it.

"Boise State played really well and we had some stretches where we played really well.

"Shane Rector played extremely well and was very efficient. You can see Alex Dargenton's confidence is growing every night. Quinn Taylor gave us some great energy. He made a lot of plays in terms of loose balls, blocks and things like that. Koby McEwen showed character after a poor first half, coming out and not hanging his head and really getting after it.

"Defensively, we didn't take away as much as we wanted to take away. The moral of the story is you have to play all 40 minutes, and we had a chance to win if we got a couple of those rebounds at the end."

Utah State Senior Wing Jalen Moore
"It was a back-and-forth game. Both teams were playing hard and tough. Obviously everybody saw how we lost the rebounds on free throws at the end. It's a tough loss, but it's the free throws at the end that killed us."

Utah State Forward Alexis Dargenton
"It was a game that got away from us at the end where we missed a few rebounds that were crucial. We needed those rebounds to win the game and that's something that we need to fix for upcoming games."

Boise State Head Coach Leon Rice
"They're (Utah State) a hard team to guard. They spread it out and they get a lot of body contact and the way they call that makes them tough to guard. We took a good shot from Utah State today. They made 26 free throws, they were efficient offensively and they beat us on the glass."
