UConn Head Coach Kevin Ollie

On his team's performance:

"I was happy with everybody's energy, having held them (Cincinnati) to 38-percent shooting, we battled them on the boards the whole night, we got 17 assists. The thing I don't like is the 14 turnovers we committed."

UConn freshman guard Jalen Adams

On UConn's offensive struggles:

"We didn't get into our offense quick enough which is something we have to work on."

On the challenge this game presented:.

"This was a big game, our crowd's always there to support us. Cincinnati is a tough team and we knew this was going to be a battle and come down to a last second shot or be close game."

On the Huskies' one-point loss:

"This is a tough loss especially knowing that I turned the ball over late in the game, I took that really personal. It's something I need to work on and we need to work on as a team."

Cincinnati Head Coach Mick Cronin

On defeating UConn:

“It’s a quality win against a really good team. We are talking about a team that has beat some real teams now. They play as good as a schedule as anyone in the country.”

On drawing up winning play:

“Initially, it was for Troy [Caupain], but they got a strip on that. We had to clear it out for him, so then I figured let me get a bigger guy in there. Also I wanted to use Troy [Caupain] as a decoy going off for the handoff thinking they’d go for that and then Gary [Clark] could go to the rim. He made me look really good.”
