"They're not going to go down easy, now," Fresno State coach Rodney Terry said. "You know a run's coming. And they did. We had to try to withstand it. ... We were going to try to figure it out. Our biggest thing was trying to stay connected. We've had some struggles on the road where we have not been as connected as we needed to be and I thought our guys for 40 minutes tonight were pretty connected in terms of finishing the game."
"The first four minutes of the second half, we had some empty possessions where we had opportunities to score the ball and we didn't," said Fresno State coach Rodney Terry. "Games on the road, you have to be able to take advantage of those situations."
