"I thought we were a little too Cadillac," said Frank Haith, Missouri Basketball Coach. "We are... our team, our identity, we've got to play like junkyard dogs.We've got to play with that kind of toughness and when we don't we can get exposed. So we've got to play like that."
"It was a little sluggish start I would say and Coach Haith always tells us we're going to get a team's best shot," said Michael Dixon, Missouri Jr. Guard. "And they came out a little on their toes more so than we did but I think we got a few defensive stops and made some defensive plays that ignited us and I think we finished it off okay."
