Recap

Ole Miss Head Coach Matt Insell

On the game…
“Full credit to Auburn.  Auburn, you know, they've got a really good basketball team, real long and athletic.  They really got spread out in their zone and caused us a lot of problems.  So full credit to them. But I'm real proud of our basketball team.  Our record don't indicate everything we've accomplished this year.  These three seniors here, I have a lot of respect for them, bringing our program to where we're now back on the radar, back to where we're being competitive each and every night, showing what Ole Miss basketball is about. I hate that the season's over.  But full credit to Auburn and their coaching staff for beating us tonight.”

On the last five games of the season…
“There's so much when you're remodeling a program, there's so much you have to get accomplished, so much you have to do. We were kind of late getting going, starting to play the way we played the last five or six games.  I'll tell you, the last five or six games we played really, really well.  If you take out the last eight minutes of tonight's game, we played as good as anybody in this league over the last five or six games. I take from it that I have three seniors that kept fighting every single day.  That will be something I use in the future with all of our seniors and continue to show examples of what these three girls have done, how they continue to bring it every single day, which motivated the younger players to bring it every single day and not quit on their season. It's not the way we wanted it to end.  We came here to win this tournament.  We'll continue doing that.  We'll continue this process.  Great days are ahead because of these three players right here.”

 On momentum heading into next year...
“We didn't get to participate in the tournament last year.  Coming in it this year, I really enjoyed the experience because just walking in the first day for practice and seeing the smiles on our players' faces, something taken away from us last year.  When you come to play in the SEC, the SEC tournament is something you really look forward to. To see their smiles, their excitement about playing in this tournament is something that really, really excited me.  We'll take from this experience, we've got experience.  Without even playing in it last year, to come in and win your first game, that says a lot about these three guys up here, their commitment, where we want our program to go. We got spring break next week.  Our girls are going to go home.  We're going to get away from each other.  It's been a long year for us.  We'll get back together next Monday and begin the phases to start next year. The first thing is we'll watch the selection show two Monday nights from now.  We'll get used to watching that because that's where we're going with our program.”
