Utah Head Coach Jim Boylen
"I watched the starts of our last three games, trying to figure out why we were getting off to sluggish starts. We tried to do a better job on the first five or six plays tonight and get off to a quicker start. We've been a little stagnant early."
"This is a big win for us against a quality opponent and an in-state rival."
Utah Junior Luke Nevill
"I missed a lot of open shots inside. I need to knock those down. If this were a close game, those shots would have played a huge factor in the result."
"We came out and defended really well. We shut down (Jaycee) Carrol at the start and stopped him from getting off to a good night. He's the key to their team."
"We went out in the second half and tried to extend our lead. We didn't want to let up."
Utah State Head Coach Stew Morrill
"In the past, we've played well here and we've also had some poor outings here. That's what happened tonight."
"They beat us in every phase of the game, but I'm really disappointed in our competitiveness tonight. We had guys that just didn't compete. You can't have no-shows when you have as many young players as we have playing."
"Utah played and executed well. We didn't guard them well, we couldn't score and we got out-rebounded. They beat us in every phase of the game."
"Right now, Utah is a better basketball team than we are and that's not even close."
"They got on a barrage at the start and we were behind the eight ball all night after that."
