Penn coach Fran Dunphy
On the difference between the first and second halves offensively:
"I don’t know that we did anything special. I just think that we ran our stuff, we were getting opportunities, and we were making shots. And when you make shots it makes it look like your stuff is really run well. I thought we had a couple really good looks in the second half—I think Ibby had a couple balls that went in and out. I think we had a number of other guys with easy jumpshots that just didn’t go in. Those things are just going to happen. But we forced a couple of things that led to easy baskets by the opposition. That was the biggest concern. We needed to finish plays when we had a chance."
On Ibby Jaaber’s controversial fourth foul:
"I said it to some of our guys. It looked like the guy was out of control a little bit. I have to see the film to see if it was solid there. But yeah it was a big play. That one I thought that if it goes our way, it’s a little bit different game. But it didn’t, so you can’t worry about it.
You’ve got to pick up the pieces and go on. But we don’t need to be without Ibby for a stretch."
On the effect of his fourth foul:
"It kept me on the bench for a big part of the game when I needed to be on the court. It definitely played a key role because we have a lot more flexibility when I’m on the court. I’m useless when I’m on the bench."
Colorado coach Ricardo Patton
On what he took away from the game:
"I thought in the first half [Penn] put on an exhibition of how to play basketball with their cuts, their unselfish passes. I’m hoping that our team can learn something about how these kids played here tonight."
