Self on KU's struggles: 'We can't play without Marcus Garrett'
“I don’t know if we did one positive thing other than the fact when Marcus drove it and we didn’t get the call, but he stole it back and got us a fresh 30 seconds,” Self said on his postgame radio interview.

Bill Self's post-game comments after the loss to West Virginia
"It was my fault. I should have called timeout. I thought with a broken floor — guys coming down with a broken floor and you're down one — I thought, you know, for sure we'd drive it. Dedric didn't have a chance [on the put-back attempt]. He had more time, I think he shot it with about one [second], one-and-a-half [seconds] left, so he probably could have gathered, but, nah, we had no chance on that last possession. That's obviously my fault. I should have called timeout. I just thought we'd drive it."
