They said it: Indiana player Will Sheehey, Yogi Ferrell and Troy Williams after 70-60 loss to Nebraska

Q: I think you tied the game with 10:08 left and the shots went kind of cold. What wasn’t working offensively there the last ten minutes of the second half?
Yeah, we just couldn’t get our mojo. We just got quiet and shots weren’t falling. That’s just a part of the game. That’s all I’m going to say.
Williams: The most we can do now is look on it tomorrow. It’s a new day tomorrow. Get right back at it.

Q. Offensively, what were you guys trying to do against the zone?
What we wanted to do is get into the middle. That’s my guy over here, Will. That’s basically what we wanted to do. And drive as well. We just didn’t finish a couple of layups here and there. That’s pretty much what we were trying to do.

Q. Will, going into the Michigan game and then the Big Ten Tournament, what are you going to tell the team?
We got to make sure we just go down swinging. This might have been my last home game, but it’s not my last game. We have numerous practices, numerous games left. Just because we lost one game doesn’t mean we’re not going to play the next game as hard as we possibly can. We’ve got to come out and play like we know we can, defensively and offensively. We still have a shot at this thing.

Q. Will, what happened against the last two nationally ranked teams you guys played that didn’t happen tonight?
I think it was just both offensively and defensively, we just didn’t play with the same swagger and edge that we usually do. I think defensively, we made some mistakes, including myself, and offensively the ball just didn’t move. We didn’t get too many transition points because getting stops on the defensive end became tough.
