Final Score: No. 3 Washington 89, No. 6 Washington State 87
Washington State Quotes:
Head Coach Ken Bone
On the end of the game...
"Romar is known not to foul, but it was a good move on his part. It was good strategy. They gave me a technical foul for calling a timeout, because apparently you can't call more than five timeouts in a game. I caught myself, but I understand why the ref called me on it. It was the right call."
On the game...
"We had a great beginning, but in the second half Washington started scoring on almost every possession, and that really set the tone. We played some great defense in the first half, limited their runs, but Washington's eight to nothing run to start the second half really got them ahead of us."
"I'm disappointed we lost, but I am very proud of Klay (Thompson), but it's always disappointing to lose, no matter if a player scores five points or 50 points. We are playing good basketball right now, and I hope the season doesn't end tonight. It's just not in my hands."
Guard Reggie Moore
On the game...
"I was fouled about five feet outside the three-point line. I tried to get out of it, but couldn't. My ankle hurts, and I probably shouldn't have played, but I love this team and I am dedicated to this team and I wasn't going to let them be without me tonight."
On Klay Thompson
"Klay (Thompson) is an awesome player, best in the league. I just wish I was healthy enough to help him out like I did last season."
