Postgame Quotes from Men's Basketball Victory|
November 19, 1998
Quoting Texas Tech forward Cliff Owens
"I think we can play better than last season and kind of balance things out between our front court and back court. At times I thought we were passive in not getting the ball up the court. UTSA tried to get us to play their game. You have to credit them."
Quoting Texas Tech head coach James Dickey
"I am glad we played at home and very happy to get this victory. We are learning and were a very young team.
"We have some athletes that have to learn that you have to bury people when you get the chance. You have to give credit to their defense but we were also stagnant on offense tonight. We have to take better care of the ball before we go to Denton. Again we didn't put in the killer punch. All I wanted to do was win this game. I thought we might be tentative coming out and we were. I think we will be a better team than most people think. I'm just disappointed that we didn't play better - it should have been a 20 point game."
Quoting UTSA Coach Tim Carter
"I wish Tech the very best. We just couldn t get over the hump and once again, that was because
of their size and athleticism.
