"I thought we shared the ball well, which is a positive," Husky head coach Lorenzo Romar said in the press release. "On the flipside, I thought we had some lapses defensively, but to have only had 10 practices and still get 16 steals -- that's a lot. I thought it forced them out of their offense."

"We missed a lot of easy shots," Romar added, "given the circumstances of traveling the day before, having to play a game so quickly, the hour bus ride ... I thought we did a lot of positive things."
