HEAD COACH TOM KUDABA
On the play of A.J. Blackwell:
“A.J. Blackwell from Carson Graham ran very well for us. He had to fill in for Jamel Lyles who has a suspected broken collarbone.”
On his thoughts on the tournament overall:
“I think this year’s team had the same amount of commitment and competitive spirit as last year’s team. We might have had some tough players that didn’t make it on the roster because of other issues but our kids came to play. We’d like to have played the Americans in a full game. [Not getting to play them] was disappointing.”
