Rose thinks BYU players will respond well after bitter loss to SMC

< Previous Page

"I actually think so, because when we go Thursday-Saturday we don't have a lot of time to go back and review the film until Monday, because we just move on, on that Friday for preparation [day].

But we had a chance to go back and look at it, we had a chance to talk about it, we had a chance to address the things in the guts of the game that we can do better. But we also had a chance to talk about the things that we did really well. And the things we did really well in that game is we competed, and we found ways to keep ourselves in the game when we weren't playing our very best. We found ways to get other guys in the game when some of our mainline guys weren't playing their very best.

We had Brandon foul out and we still had a chance late in the game to execute a play, score the ball and had a chance to win."

On whether he tightened the rotation due to pace of the game against the Gaels, or for some other reason:

"Not as many possessions in the game. I think of all the games this year, we took the least amount of shots. And in those kind of situations, when you are not substituting for fatigue issues, and the pace of the game and those things, it just naturally shrinks [playing time] a little bit."

On why Raul Delgado, Ian Harward, Cory Calvert didn't play vs. SMC:

"I would say it would be more specific to that game, and the pace of that game. We will see how things go against San Diego. They play a little bit quicker, but a lot of it now we will go, like we have talked about, we have a core group of guys and these guys coming in off the bench, we will get an opportunity to see how they are playing that night, and hopefully we can continue to rely on 12 or 13 guys, even on the nights we only use eight or nine."

On whether Brandon Davies' ankle is reason why he's struggling a bit lately:

"I think he is getting a lot of attention from opposing teams. I think physically that he feels good, and I look for Brandon to break out here pretty quickly. And the sooner the better for us."

On knowing coach Bill Grier of USD and what he's like as a coach:

"I have known Bill for a long time. He's a great coach, a really good competitor, and this team he's got right now, he's got them playing the very best that they have played all year long. And it is a unique challenge when you face a team that is on a nice little roll. And they've won five or six games in a row, haven't been beat in league. They've won their last two league road games. So they are a team with a lot of confidence.
