VIDEO: post Abilene Christian press conference

Coach Beard and his words after the 11th win of the season

NCAA Basketball: Florida Atlantic at Texas Tech Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

As games against Florida Atlantic and Rice showed the lack of concentration can bring to unpleasant results, coach Beard wanted his guys to be focused on the game against Abilene Christian.

He had what he wanted and expressed this concept after the game, when he praised his players for the mental effort they put on the field from the first minute and they maintained until the buzzer.

He had one of the longest conferences of the year, as he discussed once again his changes in the starting lineup, and addressed the problems the players have from the free-throw line.

He was joined by senior guard Justin Gray, who had a solid, 11-point performance, and freshman guard Zhaire Smith, who closed his night with 14 points, two blocks, and the usual amount of highlights.
