Huskies trimmed 15-point deficit to 6 late in second half, but never got any closer. Said Murray: 'We couldn't get over that hump. ... We tried. We fought.'
Here’s video of the postgame interview with Washington’s Dejounte Murray after the Huskies’ 86-73 loss at No. 13 Oregon on Sunday.
The UW freshman finished with 20 points.
And here’s a few quotes.
(On close defeats) “We fight. As long as we fight, don’t care if we win or lose. If we fight as a team from the last dude on the team cheering from us five guys on the court busting their tail. As long as we work hard, I’m proud of this group of guys. We just got to keep going. It’s not over. This definitely was a big game, but we fell short to a really good team.”
