Oral Roberts coach Scott Sutton
"They made shots and we didn't. Give them a lot of credit, they had a lot to do with us not making shots. 12 days ago we shot a ton of free throws and made a ton of free throws and tonight we only got to the line 14 times. That's just the way the officials called it and you've got to adjust and we didn't do a good job of that tonight."
On Sam Houston State making six first half three pointers:
"I thought their shot right before halftime was huge. There were three shots in the first half that were huge. It just kind of deflated us. They go in with all the momentum. In the second half, I thought when they made their run, they hit two more threes. We tried to go zone to get them out of rhythm. I didn't envision a team coming in here the first night being able to shoot as well as they did."
On possibility of postseason play:
"I'm not sure we deserve it. Certainly, if they ask, I'm sure we'll play. There's certainly some teams more deserving than us. It just depends on how many get in."

On the difficulty of getting into an offensive rhythm:
"We weren't doing what coach asked us to do. It's just harder when you don't do what he draws up and you don't get the ball where you need to get the ball. Everyone was trying to go one-on-one when the play breaks down, shoot the tough jump shot; getting out of character I feel like."
On when the most deflating moment occurred:
"I felt like it was at the beginning of the game, actually when everyone was trying to do their own thing. We weren't getting the ball reversed or getting it inside to Brandon (Conley). It was just a bad game to be honest."
Oral Roberts forward Brandon Conley
On difficulties faced in loss:
"It's really hard to play team basketball when everyone's not locked in. Everyone was trying to do their own thing. It was a very physical game out there. It's just tough to get on the upper hand of that when nobody's locked in."
