More Howland tidbits

On aggression:
“The first play of the game, they had the ball and they got a second shot. We just were not agressive enough, the way we need to be. They got a second shot off a missed shot because we did a bad job closing the back side, and then they scored.”

On Oregon’s 17-point win over UCLA in the 2011 Pac-10 tournament:
“We played them three times and the last time they really handled us. I haven’t watched that game yet, but what i remember is we came off a long road trip and we played like we were tired in that game. We just didn’t play well.”

On Joshua Smith coming off the bench:
“I can’t speak for the rest of the season, but right now, yeah. Josh has to help us more than he’s helped us defensively. He has zero blocked shots in conference so far. He has to be more of a presence for us on the defensive end of the floor. We need him to step up and play better defense.”
