Video and quotes: Lorenzo Romar postgame Arizona

Opening Statement:
Probably the most physical game we’ve played all year. Lost of contact neither team backed off from the other. Arizona did a great job defending us, we did a great job of defending them, and the difference in the game was they scored twenty points off of our turnovers, we scored 10 off of ours and we had the same number of turnovers, 17. We had more turnovers that were of the touchdown type, where there is no defense for it. They got out and they were able to get easy baskets and we also didn’t shoot foul shots as well. In a close game like that when you combine those two that’s the difference in the game. Very hard fought game. Our guys definitely came ready to play.

The Huskies just didn’t have enough to beat the 16th-ranked Ducks in a game where neither team could stop turning the ball over.
