On tonight’s game:
We just got a little bit distracted. Distracted in our game plan, distracted in what we came to do. … They stuck to their plan I would imagine. In watching them, they’re a very hard working, competitive team. They get to the net, they shoot it, they attack. It just looked like they stuck with their plan and it got away from us for a short amount of time and that in turn was the game.
