NCAA Second Round: UCSB vs. Providence Quotes
UC Santa Barbara
Head Coach Tim Vom Steeg
"We were rested and well prepared for today. I thought we had everything in place, and then it started raining, and it kept raining kept raining."
"Our game plan was to keep the ball on the ground, our game plan was to move the ball around. Our game plan was to connect passes."
"The benefit we had was the fact that we didn't play Thursday and you know the package they (Providence) put on the field on Thursday is the exact same package we were gonna see tonight."
On his goal:
"I was able to beat him around the corner, faked a cut to the near post and was able to slip it by him."
"Coach told us that professionals do it at their level why can't we. We kept the ball moving and after we passed the ball we kept moving as well and that created a lot of space for everybody."
Head Coach Chaka Daley
"Obviously we are disappointed. We lost to a very good team, they are capable of doing some things in the tournament. I thought we played a lackluster first half. We played much better in the second. We were able to apply much more pressure when we switched our lineup to a 4-4-2 alignment."
On his goal:
"It came off the corner kick, I made a curving run to the backpost and was able to get it past the goalie, they tried to clear the backline, but the referee said it was a goal."
