- UBC Coach, Kevin Hanson, after his ‘Birds fell just short to Seattle on Saturday, “We didn’t play very good basketball, we didn’t run our systems very well, and we’ve got to go back to the drawing board,” said Hanson. “We need to play the way we practice – we practice with so much intensity, but for whatever reason, we were a bit tight today, with the first game on the home court here. It’s the first time that half of our guys have even played on this floor. Good experience though, it’s part of growth and part of what the season’s all about.” (From Aaron Martin, Sports Information Assistant, UBC)
