Santa Clara Head Coach Dick Davey
"I am very proud of the way that we came back after falling behind by so much early on. We showed a lot of character coming back, but in the end the hole we dug ourselves was just too big to crawl out of."
"Our guys really battled, out-rebounding a more athletic team by 10 boards. Our hustle and hard work were two of the big keys that got us back in the game. We need to continue with that kind of energy throughout the league."
"It will be a another good test for us tomorrow at LMU. Our guys will really have to concentrate and be mentally prepared to make up for all of the energy they put out tonight."
