Texas Tech Red Raiders at UTEP Miners|
Dec. 19, 2010
Coach Knight - I thought we played well in the first half. We shot .500 from the field and made seven of our eight free throw attempts. In the second half, we missed a lay-up at the start and they came down the court and made two three-pointers with just over a minute off the clock. We would mount a comeback and they were able to hold the lead. I think we brought their lead down to five points on three or four occasions and they managed to extend the lead back to eight or nine points. Then near the end of the game, we had to foul and they made some free throws.
David Tairu - To start the game, it seemed like we would score and they would score. It felt like the whole first half was like that. One of us would get a small lead and then the other team made a few shots and gained a small lead. In the second half, we didn't shoot well and they did. Then at the end, we had to foul and they took advantage of that and held us off.
