Box Score |
UMass Coach Travis Ford On The Game:
I'm just happy to get a win tonight. I give Yale a lot of credit; they played a terrific basketball game. They have some good basketball players you have to give them a lot of credit. We are excited to win this game, but on the other hand we were a tired basketball team before the game started. We've been though a lot in the last week. Our key guys a banged up and I was very pleased that we wont the game. Very pleased that we found a way to win on a night where we were fatigued. Early in the game, the game was really going in our favor, the way the pace was going but the problem was we were executing our offense extremely well, but they were scoring on the other end so it kind of negates everything we were doing. Normally the pace of the game was going really well for us but again we were probably as tired as they were. Our big guys need a rest, we have a big game on Saturday.
On Dante Milligan:
Dante gave us a huge lift; he made some big baskets at crucial times. One of those three guys have got to step up, one of them has got to give us good minutes. I pulled the press off a little bit because we were fatigued. Our bench really wasn't any better, it was worse actually. I had to shorten our bench, which wasn't good. Guys like Matt Glass, Papa Lo, and Max Groebe, I need to get those guys those minutes. Matt Glass especially, he's playing real good basketball right now.
