Here's what Huskies had to say after win

Here's the transcript of what the Huskies' had to say after their overtime, last-second Pac-10 tournament championship win over Arizona:

COACH ROMAR: You can never beprouder of your team when they lay it all out on thefloor and they play together as a group and they'rejust pulling for one another. They're all lost in thegame, trying to put forth their best effort.You can't be more proud when you seesomething like that happens. I think we're able tosee from our team that happened three days in arow. Isaiah averaged over 40 minutes a gameand saved his best for last in this game here today.He did a great job of leading. And our group, ourteam did a great job of joining in with him, kind offollowing his lead.From the seniors to the freshmen whoseem like they've done this before for somereason, it was just a great effort. I'm lookingforward to find and see where Arizona's going togo and play in a tournament because they're areally good basketball team, and we're going to bepulling for them as the Pac 10 goes out.

Q. I noticed coming out in the secondhalf you pretty much didn't score until aboutthe 7 minute mark. How were you able tomaintain your composure and stay mentally inthe game to be able to contribute?

ISAIAH THOMAS: With me, I feel like a lotof people have seen it before. I score in bunches,so I'm really not worried about scoring. I was justworried about making plays for my teammates.When it came down to it, when I needed to score, Idid. At the end of the day it was just about makingplays and seeing where I could get people openshots.My teammates did a great job of knockingdown shots and keeping confidence in themselves.Just doing the right thing. That's the main thingwith me.Q. Can you take us through that lastplay what you were thinking, how it developed?
