Recap |  Box Score |  Notes

Utah Head Coach Larry Krystkowiak
On how he felt about the game
"This was the best game we have played this season and it all started on the defensive end. I thought we were able to keep pace with their tempo since they were active with their substitution patterns. I thought another key to our play tonight was the ability to get back in transition after a missed shot. Finally, I felt Glen and Jarred played very well together and meshed with one another in the backcourt better than we have seen so far.

"It was a top shelf effort tonight combining the mental and physical aspects of the game. We had some breakdowns that we will need to clean up but overall, I was very impressed with the performance this evening."

On the play of Jarred DuBois
"JD has a real nice feel to his game and he knows when to attack the interior of the defense. I also think he is a very good passer for his position and that is beneficial when you combine that with his knack to get in the lane. If he draws contact, I feel comfortable with him at the free-throw line. On the other end, I think that's as good defensively as we've seen him play this year."

On the play of Jason Washburn
"Wash is doing great as far as I'm concerned. He could be down there at the end of the bench sulking but he is constantly bringing positive energy to the table. Then when we have called upon him to contribute, he has provided scoring, like we saw tonight, and defense."

Senior Guard Jarred DuBois
On what changed from the last few games
"I think as a unit, we brought good energy and remained confident. I think the second part to that was also important to my game as well. I had to be confident but not force anything. I know I just have to go out there and compete every second I'm on the floor."



On the team defense
"I thought we were really good defensively tonight. We rebounded well and we held them to a low shooting percentage. However, If I had to identify an area that needs work, I'd say it would be on the offensive glass. we allowed them to get more than one shot on a few possessions."

On playing with Glen this evening
"It's good to have him back there with me. To know that we are both quality guards and can handle crunch-time situations, it eases the pressure. We both go out there and try and embrace the moment. We are learning how to work with one another and I think the results so far have been positive."
