POST-GAME REACTION

“The first half, their guards whipped our guards and beat us up.  Give them credit.  The second half we fought back and we need to play a full 40 minutes at that level.”
–WSU head coach Scott Nagy

“The whole game, I felt we would win.  I have great confidence in my teammates who can step up at big moments.”
Grant Benzinger

“Coach Nagy talked about making it a great senior night for Grant and Trey plus they beat us the first time so it was important since they mean a lot to us and we wanted to end their careers at the Nutter Center the right way.”
Mark Hughes
