Artis.. "We know how big these upcoming games are. We can't lack in the 1st half or the 2nd half, and we can't lose these games at home."
Artis.. "We're a good team, we're fine. We just have to learn how to control when we're down. We just have to learn from our mistakes."
Artis on the 2nd half.. "The vibe coming out of the half was to get stops, and defense. We didn't do that well enough and it got away."
Dixon on tonight's loss.. "Tonight we got what we deserved, and we have to do something about it going forward."
Dixon.. "One game doesn't define your season, we've bounced back and we have to bounce back on Tuesday (at Miami)."
Dixon.. "All the questions have been about our shooting, but we have to do a better job defensively. We can't allow 50% from the field."
Dixon.. "When we got down, we didn't handle it well. They're a hard team to play against when you're down. They're a good defensive team."
Coach Dixon "Our fans were great, the Zoo, and marketing did a great job on the Blackout. It was disappointing to play like we did."
UVA's Coach Bennett on their defensive mindset.."Take care of the paint, and then we'll worry about their shots."
UVA's Bennett on Pitt.. "They're real dangerous offensively from the perimeter, they can stretch it & shoot it."
