Kentucky-Colorado Postgame Quotes

Kentucky Head Coach Matthew Mitchell


Opening Statement...
I just really want to compliment Colorado’s players. They really played hard. They were aggressive. They were decisive. They played great. The pick and roll tonight was really impressive to see them and how hard they played.  They should be commended.

On his expectations of the game...
We wanted to come out and play what we thought would be a real tough Colorado team, to see where our team is at this point of the season. It was a great game for us to learn and I just want to compliment Colorado’s players. They really, really played hard, gave great effort and out-hustled us tonight. So it was a good lesson for us, if we don’t hustle more than our opponents we get in this kind of positions.

On assist-turnover ratio...
Colorado really gave us a great gift tonight about playing hard, playing a really aggressive trapping zone. So we’ll do nothing but go back to the film and improve from this. But again, you have to compliment how hard they played. They just did a great job. We will have an opportunity to improve from this game because of how hard they played.
