#1 Phil Pressey, G

On his shot at the end of regulation…
“We drew up the play, and that was the play it came down to. I shot it and I missed it. I don’t think that I could have had a better shot.”

On what happened at the end of the game…
“Yeah, I kind of lost the ball and so I had no other choice. It was a good thing that (Tony) Criswell made a good play to foul the guy, and not give up the easy layup.”

#21 Laurence Bowers, F

On what it was like fouling out and having to watch from the bench…
“As a player, you always want to be out there on the court. Me fouling out, it was hard to watch but I was supporting my teammates from the bench and we still had a chance.”

On whether Kentucky’s toughness in the second half was the difference…
“You know they won the game, so they were very tough in the second half.”

On how they (Missouri) account for Kentucky winning the rebound battle…
“We just got to continue to work and be tough. Like coach said, be tough.”
