Recap |  Notes

Junior Guard Austin Hollins

On getting offensive rebounds against a taller team...
"We just needed to be aggressive. If they are not being physical or not boxing out, we need to be able to sneak in there and get the rebound. We are a tough team that needs to play smart."
On the team's defensive effort in forcing turnovers...
"We played great. We forced a lot of turnovers, especially in the half court, which really got our offense going. Defense is key in games like tonight."
Junior Guard DeAndre Mathieu
On driving and scoring on longer defenders... 
"I just needed to get by the defender. I know if I get past my guy I will finish at the rim. They had some very good shot blockers, but you just need to get around them."
On his chemistry with Austin Hollins...
"On those alley oops, its easy. He's so athletic that he just goes up and gets it (the ball). It is a lot of fun to play with a guy like that."
