"They kept throwing a lot of bodies at us and we turned the ball over more than we usually do," said Wells, whose streak of 13 consecutive games with more than 10 points ended. "My hat goes off to coach [Bob] Huggins and his team. They did a good job."
"I tell the guys that the window of opportunity shrinks tremendously for us to do something really special in this tournament," Wells said. "The little things that we've been able to get by with, or being able to win while, like, not executing during the season, we can't do that now. ... We have to box out and limit turnovers and things like that, and [grab] loose balls, and all the little things matter a lot. We have to continue to execute."
