Opening statement:

I’d size the game up like this: that was as bad of an offensive first half as we’ve had all season. Along the lines of Southern Miss, because we had 12 turnovers and it’s kind of a struggle because we have individually talented guys and usually as the season grows things become easier to play together as a team. It’s not an intent issue where people don’t want to play team ball, being able to pass, being patient on possessions, taking what the defense gives, we didn’t have any of that in the first half. We were so fortunate to be down five points. And the reason why we were only down five points was because of our defense. And it was hard for them to score. We played the entire second half with only five turnovers and although it wasn’t pretty, between Solomon (Hill) and Mark (Lyons) they went a combined 0-for-8 from the three, and that’s never good for our team, but we were better. And our defense remained the same. Sometimes on the road when you can find a way and play great defense and learn, it means the world. Because you are not going to be perfect, especially in conference play. To me, this is our hardest earned victory of the season.
