Jr., C.J. Wilcox
On his confidence when other guys are stepping up with scoring:
"It helps and takes a lot of pressure off me. It’s tough to get in the rhythm in your first year and it takes a while to get into it. When they get into that rhythm, you’re not going to focus on me as much. It’s good, as far as a team standpoint. It’s hard to just key on everybody. You got to help out somebody, and with them [Andrews and Kemp] playing the way they are, it really helps us."
Never miss a local story.
When they knew they had the offensive game in them:
"It was just a matter of time. We hadn’t been playing well offensively, but we knew it was coming. We knew what we were capable of tonight."
Sr., Aziz N’Diaye
About his eye injury:
"It was a fast break and [Abdul] Gaddy threw me the ball, so I caught it and I made a fake and [the ASU player] hit his knee above my eyebrow. I was glad it wasn’t too serious and I was able to bounce back. When I got hit, I was a little dizzy. I saw the doctor and they put some anesthesia and I got some stitches, and after that I was fine."
On his last few points in the game:
"We had a lot of confidence in our guards. They made the right read and I just followed through on the shot and the ball went in. I got lucky."
On Shawn Kemp:
"He’s just playing his game. Being physical and going on the offensive glass, it all helps a lot, just having him there. He did a really good job offensively finishing on the rim."
Fr., Andrew Andrews
On his game tonight:
"I was just doing what the coaches were telling me to do. Just trying to push the ball, trying to get people open, taking what the defense gives me."
"He’s just quick, so quick. Our game plan was trying to send him left, so a couple times when we jumped the screen he would go left or a couple times he would make a tough shot. It was just a tough cover from a standpoint that he’s so fast and shifty. We just had to keep him in front. We just tried to keep fresh legs on him, trying to get different match ups to see what made him more comfortable. With [our guys] physicality’s - CJ’s quickness, Abdul’s smartness of how to play people with his ankles and everything. We just tried to give him looks."
