Myrtle Beach Invitational – Ohio vs. Utah Quotes, November 22, 2019

Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak – It was ugly last night. We broke down the film and we were deficient in a lot of different areas. I thought we bounced back well. We came out with a great focus, we played hard and we shared the basketball. It was good to get a win. It’s a tough environment and I was proud of our guys. We guarded and shared and didn’t have a high turnover total.” (On hitting 27 of 28 free throws): “That was great. They’re called free for a reason and often they get overlooked. It’s not the fact that you make most of them, it’s the one-and-ones. Those little things add up and 27 points is remarkable for our guys.”

Ohio coach Jeff Boals – “I didn’t think they were going to miss one and they finally missed one. The biggest from our standpoint, they got beat pretty good by a good Coastal Carolina team and we got beat by a good Baylor team. Our sense of urgency and our will to win had to be greater than theirs and I thought theirs was better than ours. That’s what good teams do; they respond. Our guys compete and battle, we’ve just got to continue to learn from this. I told them afterward we have a chance to be really good and these are the types of teams you face in the first round of the NCAA tournament.”
