We're used to playing away games. It was loud in there. It was crazy. But we've been in situations like that before.
We can't lose. We have a tough game Tuesday and a tough one on Sunday (against Villanova). When we get those two out of the way, we have another two left. That's it right there. We just have to bear down for four more games. Then the worst we can do is tie.
I think they were more aggressive than they were the previous two games.
We need to take advantage of these games and continue to win. They might be a little dinged up, but they are still a really good team. We can't have any slip-ups.
We cannot give up a 10-point lead, but we got the win, and that's what's important.
I need to be able to stay on McNamara's hip and not give him any open looks.
No one has been able to stop him. We obviously didn't want to give up 30 points to him. It's everyone's job to get in there to do what we need to to stop him. He has phenomenal talent.
Playing a No. 16 seed, sometimes you think they are going to lie down and give us the win. We need to go out and take the first hit.
I know they're going to give us a game. Seems like everyone is having their best game against us. Being No.1, we're a target.
I think so. When we come out clicking and we're all on the same page, we're a pretty good team.
We came here and bounced back with a good, solid win.
We're twice as good. He's the team leader.
I saw part of that game, where the guy hit him in the groin. I saw that game. Hope he dont hit me
He came back to the hotel angry. I just told him everyone has their game. Your game wasn't Friday. Just come back strong on Sunday.
We came out with a lot of intensity from the get-go. In the first half, the rim kind of felt like a big bucket from 3-land, and I kind of got in a groove and just kind of fed off of that.
I think I kind of realized in the second half that it was easier to penetrate, because they were overplaying so much. I think I just realized it too late. In the first half, I was just trying to get us in our offense.
I'd say late in the game, probably (ex-North Carolina guard) Raymond Felton last year.
I tried to hit Staf (Mustafa Shakur) and Chris (Rodgers) came up and I thought I could get it to him.
This is a team I thought that could get to the national championship game.
I think because we smacked them twice ... maybe. Maybe we thought they'd be dead against us, but they won that close game Wednesday over Cincinnati. I don't know. But I don't think Denham should be putting this on him. Everybody made mistakes tonight.
We just sat here and thought. Basically a mental thing where we knew we didn't do the job and we didn't do our job defensively or offensively so we just kind of had a moment of silence.
I really don't know too much about them. I'm just taking it one game at a time, whether we're playing Louisville or the Lakers.
We couldn't get a stop. We just couldn't. That's only the second time a team has shot 50 percent against us ... They beat us on the glass. They went after every loose ball. They made big shots.
This is our time to restore the season. This is going to show a lot of this team's heart. We are starting from scratch with a 0-0 record.
We're ready to play. It's the time of year where you have to put everything behind you. The regular season is over. We got the championship, but that's all said and done.
