Utah Head Coach Larry Krystkowiak
"Embarrassing is a good word for it. We got manhandled in all elements of game. Mentally we weren't engaged for whatever reason. There was some initial stuff we had in the game plan from the very first 3-point shot, guys aren't locked in and its very disturbing at this point."

"At halftime we had been outscored by one player 16-11, but we still held them to 27 points. We missed a lot of open shots initially. Offensively they took a lot of stuff away that we wanted to do and we didn't make a lot of plays, we shot 20%. That makes the game hard, it puts a lot of pressure on your defense. If you told me before the game `you will hold them to 27 at half, `would you like that?' I would say absolutely. Defensively we hung in there, but you put so much heat on your defense by doing that, the second half just killed us. We still weren't seeing the ball go in, and that's when it's fun. The ball goes in and it gives you a little energy, but we didn't have it."

"We have to move on. I'm really disappointed with how we started [Pac-12 play] but there are 17 of them left. We don't get a re-try. It's a big lesson learned for a lot of guys. Now we have to get charged up, open up play at our place on Thursday and hopefully we will have a good enough week to put it behind us."
