Mike Anderson postgame comments

Denmon led five Tigers in double figures on 8 of 15 shooting including 5 of 8 from the three point line. Michael Dixon had 18, Matt Pressey 15, Kim English 11 and Ricardo Ratliffe had 10.

The biggest factor in this game was rebounding. The Monarchs came into this game with one of the biggest rebounding differentials in the nation and the Tigers were only outrebounded by one…30-29.
