USC Coach Chris Gobrecht-
"It was a poor effort for us defensively. We are dissapointed in that. I didn't want to get into a shootout with them. That was a big mistake. We've got a team that's beat up and short-handed. We're just trying to build on something and get better for next year."
USC Center Adrain Williams-
"I went at UCLA (on offense). That got me into the game. I could have played better on defense. I'm learning this year. We could use more experience."
SC has enjoyed success against UCLA dominating the series with 28 wins and 20 losses.
