HOUSTON HEAD COACH James Dickey

Opening Statement
“I’m really disappointed. Certainly congratulate San Jose (State). They hit some big shots, but we have a 15-point lead with nine minutes to go in the second half, and they outscored us by 19 down the stretch. They scored 43 in the second half, and when you combine that with 39 percent shooting, you aren’t going to win. It’s a poor performance. I take full responsibility. I didn’t have our guys ready to play at the level that they needed to. We were tentative defensively. We didn’t recognize and get to shooters. Certainly (Jalen) James had a huge game; triple-double and only took four shots. He really controlled the game. They played just like I thought they would play. We told them they were dangerous, and they would play us soft, and we were going to have to be patient. We have to get the ball to TaShawn (Thomas) more. He only had nine shots.

You can’t help teams. When you have a 15 point lead two things have to happen. The other team has to make shots, and you have to help them. We certainly contributed.”

On the play of senior guard Brandon Morris
“Brandon shot the ball well. I’m not so concerned about us shooting the ball as I am defending on the other end. We got 27 points in the second half and they had 43. Brandon was our leading rebounder at five. We didn’t have one guy get over five rebounds. It all starts with defensive rebounding.” 

On the struggles rebounding
“We were standing around too much. We knew that they were going to play soft and collapse. That’s the way they play. They were going to play the gaps. You can’t fall into that trap, and we did. I just didn’t do a good enough job getting our guys moving and popping. We stood around, and as a result we got tentative and, that’s what that defense is designed to do. I didn’t prepare our guys as well as I needed to.”
