“Well, in my opinion, there’s not a lot I can say. It was a butt-kicking that’s what it was. You want to try to emphasize sprinting back on defense and that’s a thing we talked about yesterday and today. I tried to work on it, but in the first half they have 20 fast break points to our zero. So I didn’t do a very good job of coaching and getting our guys ready. I’m not big into moral victories whatsoever. We did try to make a comeback but I think our teams will always make a comeback. North Carolina State was more prepared. They had a greater sense of urgency. They worked harder.
