LAURENT COURTOIS

"It's a really good team we faced today and we knew that either they were going to have some control and that we would have to be really careful, but we didn't give up our mission from the beginning which was having the ball and they were able to capitalize on transition, which they did. They were also dangerous in the second half. We knew that both on the ball and off the ball it's a really good team we faced and today it could have gone both ways."

BRYCE DUKE

"It's going to be a busy month. It's going to go quickly so we need to focus on recovery and to take each game at a time. We just need to be smart with everybody recovering and making sure that our body is good because we are going to need everybody."
