2010-2011 Season

Video: John Beilein After Minnesota Loss

Video of John Beilein’s post-game press conference is below. Notes and quotes after the jump.

  • Minnesota’s length, size was a real factor from the get-go. That and being in foul trouble the whole time really hurt.
  • Defensively, struggling because of fouling and “playing in bad positions.” Minnesota played a part though as well.
  • “Evan and Jordan are in foul trouble, every game, just like that.” Big men need to keep working on not picking up silly fouls.
  • “I’m not concerned with the chemistry (of the team) at all.”
  • “(Mental mistakes) were really toubling and they happened over and over again.”
  • Said the referees didn’t call the game the way Minnesota has traditionally been called this season, against what they watched on game film.
  • Tim played great, was very happy with his aggressiveness and how he was knocking down shots. “There aren’t a whole lot of freshmen in the country who are putting up 20 on Minnesota.”
  • On Darius’s lack of production recently: “He’s playing against Big Ten talent.”
  • Regarding Darius being taken out of the game, referenced his four early turnovers.
  • Was tough to run zone with Hoffarber on the floor because of his shooting. Thought it was 50-50 tonight.
