I think I said this out on the floor DCU's. Run was inspiring to a lot of people including us. The way that they play the way that they really beat a lot of unbelievable teams. Handily. Was remarkable and I've made them the hottest team in the tournament. Coming into this game and the you know I guess the one thing this that we do have on our side is is we know how difficult it is to play against everyone. Because. We have to. Whether you're BCS school a non BCS school whatever the case may be most of our games are against non BCS schools and they have. Terrific teams across the board terrific coaches and shock the smart in DC you are one of those at was a great game. I was nervous suspect when they start making all those threes early I thought our rotations were okay. But not. Probably good enough but then our guys adjusted pretty well and I thought we defended for the most part the way we wanted to you know you look at. Rose was so for three and Rodriguez was one for five. Burgess is -- tough guys to guard because they put them in the rotation spots and so occasionally you're going to be late on one of them. But really proud of that we said coming into the game that. It was going to be a possession game and it was going to be something where we had big. The great with the ball which I thought we were thought we attacked the pressure well. And we try to get 80% plus back on the defense of glass and try to get 40% plus back. On the offensive glass and we were 8338. And that ended up being good enough. You got he trusts her teammates that what we're doing and what we talked about doing in the first. 3738. Whatever minutes. Have. That have already been played you're gonna do those same things in the last two minutes -- it's -- believes that you know whatever whatever you talked about doing you're gonna do it doesn't. You know whatever happens is gonna happen you know we have a belief in each other that we can get it done. When it comes down to the end of the game. I would say just take your ball office we have to take -- borrowing get great shots and not turn -- they don't -- easy easy right now on possession. Also it was something great sensing opportunity now. We haven't worked the clock. Completely turn over is an opportunity is to run down -- and get a get a great look. So I think it's focus locker room and we realize that there's still there's still game to be played in. And hopefully another game to be one and that's what we wanna do and we're gonna prepare to do that. Since the messes that were pretty good. That we're we're good enough to make it this far. I think your college basketball's evolve over the past. 23 decades. And I can say yesterday. With news. Rise and grassroots basketball these guys have played against. All it took the good players on teams from all the major conferences a lot of mid major conference is so they're not afraid. In the we were out there we we outplayed five BCS teams you played in the NCAA tournament. So did you know Butler has has done that now so. It just shows you know when you have a good program and you've got a senior -- team. You got a chance to win. This clip was brought to you by muscle -- gets powerful pro team. Drink --
