Tonight was probably more meaningful to you guys than it was to us,” said Tatum. He further added, “It’s one game. We want to win every game we play but it’s tough. You never want to lose. We’ve been playing well and to lose this one, — especially the way we played is tough — but it’s not going to dictate our season. We’ve had a great season so far and we lost the game. It’s all about how we respond.”
