Texas A&M Quotes

Head Coach Buzz Williams

On today’s game…

“One of the things that we talked about before the game was, kind of like football, time of possession. We wanted to win time of possession and too many times, we didn’t take that opportunity. Other than the last three minutes of the second half I thought our fight was much better. Lowest number of turnovers thus far this season, highest number of offensive rebounds this season. And I think in an unspoken way those are byproducts of how hard we were fighting.”
