American lost 86-84 to Loyola Wednesday night to fall to 13-11, 7-6 in the Patriot League (tied for fourth with Army). See below for full video and select quotes from head coach Mike Brennan after the game.
On the game shifting
”They were just more aggressive going to the rim. It was all of them. It wasn’t just one guy — it was like multiple guys looking to be aggressive off the dribble, taking guys one on one. … They had four guards out there, and it was just too many guards for us.”
On dealing with the game’s stagnation and foul calls
”Yeah, well again it’s just us not being able to guard. You want to use a timeout here, use a timeout there. … But at the end of the day, we’ve got to get better. That’s something that, you know, we got exposed tonight and we got to make sure that we do something about it in practice.”
