Tennessee Head Coach Buzz Peterson
"Nebraska did an excellent job in the first half of being more physical. I warned our guys that they were a very physical team, but they just took it to us. We can't rely on three-point shooting as much. On the road for the first time, it was a good lesson learned.
On shooting struggles.
"I never would have bet you that Scooter (McFadgon) would be 3-of-22 (from the field). In the first half I was pleased with our defense, but we couldn't get any buckets. On the road, we've got to getter better shots. Nebraska struggled shooting also and we had our chances. Guys kept fighting to get it to a single-digit game, but we just couldn't get there. We got some close shots, but we never finished. We either got fouled or just missed."
Nebraska Coach Barry Collier Quotes
"We're really pleased that we bounced back as well and with as much toughness as we did from Wednesday's disappointing loss. Today was a great demonstration of team defense."
**On NU's defense
"There was a tremendous amount of awareness and help given on Crump, even though he ended up with a lot of points. We still were able to hold down some of the other guys, and that forced them to be a little more one-dimensional."
