MISSOURI HEAD COACH Frank Haith

Overall thoughts on the game...

"A hard-fought, high-level game. I thought our guys competed. It was a very physical, very, very physical ballgame particularly there in the second half, but we came up short."

On the play of Johnathan Williams, III...

"It was his first test of this type of game in this type of environment. We wanted to get some paint production and we wanted to go inside. I thought there in the first half we settled for some deep threes, and we were trying to get him involved for sure."

On the play to take lead on Brown's three with 14 seconds left...

"It was great execution on a sideline out of bounds play, I thought we did a really good job there, and Jordan made the extra pass."

On the play of Tony Criswell...

"Tony did a real nice job. It's tough to lose a game like this. There's going to be a lot of things we'll look back on, but I thought our guys gave great effort. The loose balls there (down the stretch), and then the turnovers in the first half were tough too."
