New Mexico Head Coach Steve Alford Quotes
"The thing we are really struggling with is leadership. Last year we had a guy who would be very vocal and he let everybody know it. When it gets late in the game, that is the thing that is most troublesome for us right now as coaches."
"When it comes to playing and you have to make good decisions, you have to have leadership on the floor, and we are really struggling to find that right now. We're just a really quiet team."
"We've just got to keep working. It is a long season and we have to hope our freshmen keep getting better and somehow, someway our upperclassmen have to perform at a higher level. That first round draft pick is gone, so sometimes when that happens you're underneath an umbrella and once the umbrella leaves, you are exposed."
