American fell 80-78 to Lehigh in overtime on Saturday, dropping its seventh straight game to fall to 5-20, 2-12 in the Patriot League. See below for full video and select quotes from Mike Brennan's postgame presser.
On the late technical foul
"I probably just overreacted to contact on a drive. But you know — just making sure. It's more watching our guys work, wanting to get a win for them. Refs got a hard job so I'm not upset with them. It's more an overreaction on my part."
On trusting his players late (referring to late possession in overtime)
"I trust my guys and their decision-making. That's how we coach. We let them, we give them a lot of freedom and opportunity. So I trust everything that they do."
On Sam Iorio (career-high 30 points)
"He's good. We knew he was good coming in. He's been producing. I'm surprised he hasn't worn down. I thought he'd be worn down more. But he's a really good player. There's still much more that I think he can do and he knows that. But yeah he's been a beast for us."
More on Sam and being comfortable in the offense
"He's not even that comfortable, to be honest with you. He's just like a good player instinctively so once he does get fully comfortable he'll be able to help a lot of other guys, too. But to have the ball in his hands as much as he does it and to have all the decisions that we're looking for him to make, you can't ask for anything better."
