Ohio Head Coach Lynn Bria:
"I thought that (Eastern Michigan) came out and did a real nice job to start. I thought their point guard hit some huge shots that we didn't anticipate. It got us down in the first half. I thought our players responded well. They did a good job keeping their head in the game."
"What really bothered me is that they are a team that all five players can score. I felt like that if we could just control the glass, we could hang with them. You've got to control the rebounding with them to stand a chance."
"I think we showed a lot of character. Our last game we didn't play real well. I knew they were not real happy with the way they played that game, and they wouldn't play like that again."
"I thought we had a lot of chances, I really did. The shots just didn't fall. I think with the defense and rebounding, especially against them, you'll have a chance to win. But at some point the ball has got to go in the basket. I thought that we took good shots, the shots just didn't fall. I thought at the beginning of the game we had open shots, we just couldn't get them to fall."
