“You gotta hug old ugly every once in a while. Defense always keeps you in a game, no matter how bad you are shoot. I told them I don’t believe they would have won a game like this last year.”

“Defense works. We defended well tonight, but took bad shots especially shooting off one pass. Our offense was Arkansas State’s best offense.”
