They took the 15 point lead up to [26] at one point. You need to probably make an initial surge or move. That didn’t happen. From that point on, we did make a couple of runs and showed some spirit and a little bit of competitiveness, but I think they were just better than us tonight.

They really got hot and they were getting a lot of easy fast break points and getting to the basket. When you’re (letting them do) those [three] things, it’s kind of hard to stay in the game.

We had open shots and we didn’t make them. We’ve got to give them credit. They played good and they played good defense as well.
