3.5: STAN/CAL postgame -- Mike Montgomery
Mike Montgomery meets the media after knocking off Stanford.
All four game win streak and are coming off a three game losing streak world streaks. You where you play people who you play. It was two road wins last week were huge it gave us an opportunity to be in the position we are right now. Obviously with one game this week Wednesday -- but there was a whole lot more at stake for us as we looked at -- -- start looking at the fact that we thought that if we won this week you can for ourselves that's quite an accomplishment. Weren't in less if -- wins they'll will talk. But you know if they. If they don't. Not able to beat Washington Washington which is formidable task for all ourselves. In seventeen -- of those things are the things that we look at. The number -- games winning. Really doesn't have much bearing although the fact that. You know those four world put us in this position Spurs as part. We decided we want to try to place Stanford man because it's. Mean -- little more aggressive. I don't know surprised with that at all and privileges. But we decide we want to come out to be the aggressor as compared to let him get after us. Network get fired up and and good week of practice we've practiced pretty hard Tuesday Wednesday tried to back a little bit Thursday Friday. That it actually exit and pretty good team. It our guys. Well you know they've they've got a good lineup and you know brown can tune. I guess bright -- hurt. I don't know what happened there but you know brown could -- obviously green can shoot I'll really hurt us last time won't terrific athletes -- by and large -- pretty good job to look for starters for four points. Even green. I don't oriented terrific job on -- first out yet fourteen -- I would say either of those points where. Light they rebounded it and we lost him and kicked out shot in the in the a couple of really nice baseline drives people should. Post guy out but he's really good player I thought -- terrific job on him and you know more than anything I think what happens if you where people -- They lose their confidence in the ability to certain and I hear geniuses working where's where's this guy out of weeks. School war and it starts to wear. A dollar guys were pretty persistent in terms of the couple charges which. You know we haven't been graded on that I thought the loose ball. Expect it was on our bench you know has always -- -- the last time we played them -- there. We got loose balls and you know I mean his game to play it. Are welcome. Well we'll cross coverage we get to it I mean. Like this I think there's a lot of people in this league did when -- I really do a lot of people I would include in that group. A lot of people are capable witness -- and the -- -- in four games ago but. It was pretty good depth is going to be our plan -- world. For us and others don't have great. Washington State I think he's capable of winning it always happens with you know Warren and -- Thompson but. -- went -- on our budget first after she's she'll play I think a lot of people can witness I think it's going to be. Good tournament from that perspective. And I I don't know that we take it but -- actually pretty good. Maybe it wasn't in December and November December. There was some losses. That you know raise some eyebrows but I think right now it's it's pretty solid people figured out how to play people -- -- people. And oh and I think. It could be discussion about the number of different things hours next next. It.
