Southern Miss Head Coach Larry Eustachy Quotes

On his team’s performance ...

“They (K-State) guarded well and we didn’t show a lot of patience on offense. You have to give Kansas State a lot of credit because they played really physical. We had decided to stick with what we planned on doing but we didn’t have the mental toughness to do what we were supposed to. We just got hammered and beat up. We got to go back and try again in a few days.”

 

On falling behind but battling back with a couple scoring runs...

“This program is just a little short-handed right now and we don’t have what we need to win in a place like this. We can stay in the game and make a couple comebacks but we make to many mistakes as a team and have too many break downs to stay in the game.”

 

On if the depth of K-State played a difference tonight...

“I don’t think it is a huge difference for them. When they play tough teams like Kentucky they only played six players. I don’t think the depth had anything to do with the performance tonight; we are just not very tough right now. We are just not there as a program right now, we will just keep trying.”
