Head coach Craig Robinson had this to say after the loss, "A couple of things, bad playing number one and I think the altitude really affected the guys. We had one kid who got altitude sickness but that isn't an excuse because we started out well when we were executing, but from then I want to take a look at the tape and see what happened. I suspect it was the offensive rebounds in the first half."
Texas-Pan American, a Division I member of the Great West, is currently 3-8 on the season.
