“I think it'll just fuel the fire, actually,” said Cowboys forward Michael Cobbins. “We'll be ready to get back on the court and prove ourselves once again. I think if anything, it'll help us to let this be in our minds when we practice. Go hard and worry about our next victim.”
OSU guard Markel Brown: “We didn't play hard enough. That was it. They got 50-50 balls. They were in a higher gear than we were.”
