Coach Stockton's Comment's Following Sunday's Win Over SMU

Recap |  Final Stats

Overall thoughts on the game
"We just came out with a much different focus today. We took better shots and hit our shots. Our offense shooting 56 percent in the first half and coming out the second half with a pretty big run really took them out of the game. Our defense was a lot more aggressive today. Not only did we get steals but we got a lot of deflections that took them out of their offense. We didn't give them a lot of easy scores in the paint. Elliott didn't really get a lot of good looks in there, and that was something that we were really concerned about. This was a good way to rebound from Friday."

On having so many players play significant minutes against the Mustangs
"It was a good opportunity as banged up as we are to not have to play our injured players for 30 minutes today. Hopefully, we can get the benefit from that this week."

On the C-USA race so far
"It's wide open. Everybody is going to beat everybody. We're certainly in a situation where if we take care of business we can be up at the top. But let's not forget that we still have seven more games to play."
