"I was trying to find something different", he said of playing without an undershirt.
"It still was an wonderful year for this program, " Lindsey said in the losing locker room.

In the early going, the Zags controlled.
Gonzaga led its second-round NCAA Tournament game 63-56, but the Wildcats were closing fast.
Trevon Bluiett had a game-high 29 points for the Musketeers (23-13), who will be making their sixth appearance in the Sweet 16 over the past decade.
"After watching some film we thought it would be best if we switched 1 through 4 off the ball and on the ball". "We weren't really anxious about (that). Really nice people but I'm sure when that ball goes in the air, it'll turn real quick".
The keepers of the game that has filled Chris Collins's whole life long have figured there's plenty of room along the sideline, or at one's unused chair, for justified anger.More news: IRON FIST Episode Four Recap: A Line in the Sand
Northwestern shot 50% (18-of-36) from the field in the second half. The Zags warmed up in the second half, making 6 of 16 3s, to pull away for a 66-46 victory. He made at least half his shots in 15 of the team's 36 games this season, but he also had 11 games in which he shot 25 percent or lower. Coach Mark Few turned to his bench and inserted freshmen Zach Collins and Killian Tillie for Przemek Karnowski and Johnathan Williams. "We hadn't shown that yet obviously in the tournament". We just came up a little bit too short. Next was Bryant McIntosh, the plucky point guard who struggled shooting 6 of 19.
"It's the tournament", Collins, who had 12 points and three blocks in the second half, said.
John Calipari would never let his team look past Northern Kentucky, but as an analyst I have that privilege. So it was wonderful timing when an NCAA official, at the opening of the news conference, read a statement from the NCAA admitting the refs' mistake. There was no call, and Northwestern Coach Chris Collins, jawing with the officials all day, ran onto the court and was slapped with a technical foul.
That's an automatic technical foul in any situation, but the coach really did have a reason to be upset.
That said, there's only so much ink I can devote to the Wildcats from the North, because my Big Blue Cats from Kentucky take on in-state rival Northern Kentucky tonight in Indianapolis.
"We don't win that game without Tillie", said Collins. Collins' hand was inside the rim, which is a no-no.
While it was very clearly interference, the call is not allowed to be reviewed. Despite the loss, the players said they were proud to be a part of the organization and to have made it as far as they did, even if they did not overcome Gonzaga.
"As much as we deserved the fans flying out here and giving us as much love as they did, they deserve just as much credit as we do", Law said.
"Do (I), in my heart, think if Dererk (Pardon) gets that call and we cut it to three, we have a great chance to win?"
