Head Coach Tom Crean
"When we reverse the ball, it gives us opportunities to drive. When we push the ball up the court we create. When we wanted to, we got touches in the post. Those things were the most important aspects for us tonight. The guys played the game in smart, concise way. We didn't start settling for jumpers. The game dictates in certain ways and we stuck with it tonight."
"Everyone on the floor had the ball moving crisply. Our guys are growing up as basketball players and we really need to continue to build on that. They are learning rapidly how we win. How we win may be different from other programs and is something we need to continue to get better at, and we are learning that."
"We need to continue to get every involved, make everyone feel like they are a threat and we will get open shots. As long as everyone is touching the ball, we will get open shots."
