"They are ranked for a reason," Oliver said. "They have great players. It is tough with seven guys and they are bringing in fresh bodies. It's tough. They are a good team and they answered our runs. They answered right back whenever we tried to make a run."
"I think this game gave us a little more sense of ourselves, what we are capable of doing with the bodies that we have," said Brian Oliver, who led the Pirates with 20 points. "Moving forward I think we can capitalize on that."
