UConn Head Coach Kevin Ollie

Opening Statement

“It was a tough game. I give credit to Houston, they came out and played the second half. They shot unbelievably. I don’t know where our defense went, it was all transition. It’s just a tough loss and hopefully our guys feel this. You know, it was a great crowd out here and I’m just disappointed for them, come out here and see the game the way they did.”

On Dodson

“Yes, he been playing well and he dominated the whole game. Make sure you write that, he dominated the whole game. It just comes down to toughness and I want to stop my man and lack of effort we showed.”

UConn Sophomore Forward Daniel Hamilton

On the team’s performance     

“It was really disappointing, we had them in the first half and in the last three minutes we really struggled and turned the ball over. Specifically me, I turned the ball over a lot, I had three turnovers in the first half and then in the second half we just didn’t get back in transition and we didn’t communicate.”

On the up and down nature of the team

“It’s really frustrating but we put ourselves in the situation now we just got to get ourselves out, starting on Thursday.”


UConn Junior Center Amida Brimah

On frustration after the loss

“This was a big game for us and we just didn’t come through.”

On the ups and downs

“We just got to learn how to stay solid as a team. We can’t be playing selfish basketball.”
