KU assistant on loss to Villanova: 'I think the best team won tonight'


San Antonio — After witnessing an elite shooting display by the Villanova Wildcats, KU assistant coach Kurtis Townsend had nothing but respect for the opposition.

"It seemed like they just made everything," Townsend said. "I think the best team won tonight."

The Wildcats blitzed the Jayhawks offensively, drilling 13 3s in the first half and finishing with 18 for the game.

However, Townsend didn't think the loss should sour what KU fans thought of the season.

"I think in a good way," said Townsend, asked how fans should remember the team. "I think they accomplished a lot."
