Jr., C.J. Wilcox
Did you think of letting Johnson go when you had three fouls?

No, I got caught up in the game. I saw a guy going for a dunk and I made a play on it

Are you surprised with the slumps, and how the ball just doesn’t seem to go in from outside?
It’s frustrating. It surprising cause its at home. Sometimes that’s how it works. You have to find a way to win the ball game. I feel like we had a chance to win the game we just ha to execute

Did you feel the crowed after you hit that three?
Yes, I felt it for a couple plays. We got a couple stops and I got into it. Like I said, we just need to execute at the end of the game. The turnovers just cost us.

Sr., Abdul Gaddy
What was good at the start and what did you see down the stretch?
We started off well. We came ready to play today we just turned the ball over too much down the stretch. We just didn’t execute

Tell me about that lob pass?
Gaddy: It was just a bad pass. I should have got it there
Wilcox: It was behind the backboard too much. I just tried to save it and ended up turning the ball over

Was that the call on that lob play?
It was just meant to isolate CJ. I didn’t see anybody helping at the rim. I should have just made a better pass. We just had to execute

Are you surprised with the slumps, and how the ball just doesn’t seem to go in from outside?
It’s frustrating. It surprising because it’s at home. Sometimes that’s how it works. You have to find a way to win the ball game. I feel like we had a chance to win the game we just ha to execute

Why did Aziz take that last shot?
I didn’t even know he was in the game. I thought somebody else had subbed in. The play was for CJ. I knew that two guys were going to run to him. When I passed it into the corner, I was like, why is Aziz in there? It just happended

Does this loss hurt more?
It doesn’t hurt more than any other loss. Our team hates losing. It’s tough to take losses, but I think we want to win bad for ourselves and we want to win bad for our fans. We just want our fans to support us. We don’t want fans not showing up to games just because we have been losing down the stretch. We still have a lot of good basketball left in us. If our fans keep coming to support, we will turn it around…it’s coming.
