Postgame Quotes Wisconsin vs. I know we had a lot of people from the Menomonee area and that part of the state, specifically those cancer patients that were able to be here today and be recognized at UW's second-annual Cancer Awareness Game. Hopefully we can continue to raise awareness and help the state of Wisconsin through our efforts.
In terms of the game, this game is always one that's fun to play. For us, it's a great opportunity to play against a team that we saw pressure from the whole game. We saw a team that's running the motion offense with five men that we typically don't see. It taught us a lot. I think we learned a lot through the game. I saw different combinations, guys getting better as the game went on, and understanding some things and being able to handle the pressure for 40 minutes.
For the most part, other than a few here or there, we did a decent job against it. It's Something that as we break down the film will definitely help us, and those games always do, because it's a team that's preparing for a season and trying to execute their system as well.
By and large, I'm happy with getting to the line as much as we did and want to get there more. Shot selection was better in the second half than what it was in the first. Defensively, we started to figure out some things more as time went on. We obviously had some specifically youthful mistakes at different times. Now, as I told the team, it starts counting for real.
The exhibitions are over, and Friday night, here we go. We had chances to go back inside and we didn't. Most of the 3s we made in the first half were inside-out, other than Kobe King's late in the first half. In the second half, I thought we were better. We didn't get as eager to pull a quick 3. We do need to get to the free throw line, that's always how better teams have gotten there a lot.
We have a lot of guys who can get there. We have a lot of guys who can post and a lot of guys that embrace the physical contact that comes with it, so we need to do a better job of feeding the post. We've gotten better. At times, we missed some guys who were open tonight that I thought we didn't see or were erroneous in how we tried to deliver the ball.
I've never really played point guard before. I knew there would be a chance for me to play a little bit of the one spot. Overall, it was pretty fun. I think it was good to get practice against teams like those. Just staying confident and aggressive in these games has been huge for me and I hope it continues. The coaching staff stresses it every practice and every time out. Not just with getting to the line, but it's about driving, jump stopping, getting in there and being aggressive.
It's definitely an advantage on this team. It's big for us young guys to get that playing experience. It's been huge for us. Obviously, we did some good things both offensively and defensively, but what an honor to come in here and play the Badgers. We did some good things tonight. We had some bad stretches. Coming into a game like this you're thinking if we can score 40 we'd be good.
We obviously out-did that quite a bit. Defensively, I think we're a tough team to play, because that's what we want to be. We want to be that team that teams don't want to play. I think defensively you saw a lot of that tonight with our full-court run-and-jump press and with our traps.
We're very unpredictable and guys don't know where we're coming from. Half the time, we don't know where we're coming from, but the bottom line is it can be really effective. At the same time, when it was ugly, it was ugly. When it was bad, it was bad. We know that. We just have to clean things up, and get better at it. It was a great opportunity and we are extremely grateful to Greg Gard and his staff and the Badgers for letting us do this.
He's obviously a great player, but we felt, like all teams are feeling, that you have to kind of take him out and then see what happens. The rest of the guys on this team for the Badgers, they have great size. They've got great strength, and they shoot the ball extremely well. I don't see a lot of weaknesses in them, but they, like us as well, have a lot to work on. If you can take one guy out, then you force them to go to somebody else.
As we've seen throughout the course of this early season, they have a lot of guys that can do different things and we certainly couldn't cover them all. We did our best, we tried our best, but again, we did some good things in terms of our attack, both defensively and offensively.
