Five Questions with Matt McMahon 2/12/19



Question: Why do you think you struggled in the first half against SIU-E and Eastern Illinois?

Matt McMahon: We got in foul trouble in the first half against SIU-E and that changed our plan of attack. And I don't think we handled that well. Against EIU credit Coach Spoonhour for going to the four guard lineup. He didn't play his center who usually starts and plays a lot. They put five perimeter shooters on the floor and that made it extremely hard for us.

But in our last three games, we were down five against Tennessee Tech, dowb seven against EIU, and down eight against Edwardsville. In the next 32 minutes combined in those three games we outscored them 90-24. That's a credit to our players and how they responded to those deficits.
