BYU Coach Steve Cleveland
- "The turning point of the game was in the second half. When we turned it over for the first five possessions of the second half, the swing of the game turned"
- "They shot the ball very well, and when they shoot 70 percent in the second half, it's hard to beat anyone."
-"We had control of the basketball game, but we let it go in the first three or four minutes of the second half."
-" We're not good enough to beat this caliber of team when our whole team is not playing well."
" I thought Jimmy (Balderson) played really well. I thought our post players played really well, but they just aren't an offensive threat."
"Our whole focus is to get these guys to play better and prepare them for years to come."
Utah Coach Ray Giacoletti
-"They put us back on our heels early; it's just an incredibly tough place to play."
-"In the second half, we did a better job of doing the little things."
