 Austin Croshere - “The last two games, we're playing better, happier for each other, more assists and less turnovers. It's fun to be out there.

I don't think anybody is pretending the last eight games didn't exist.”
 Austin Croshere - “We're still in a buildingrebuilding stage. We're still trying to find an identity as a team. We've had success in doing that so far, but it's kind of in it's infancy stages.

 Austin Croshere - “We had chances early, but they hurt us on the offensive boards. They get out on the break and we feed that when we turn the ball over like we did.' It's hard to get anything out of a game like this. We've got a big character game tomorrow in San Antonio.”

 Austin Croshere - “I think early on guys were trying to feel each other out trying to move the ball. I don't think we have a selfish team by any means, but we have guys that are confident, that feel like they can take their man at times. I think one of the things we have been preaching early on is that the next man can take his man, too. If there's a better opportunity we have to move the ball.”
 Austin Croshere - “I really thought we were going to win that game. It was disappointing, but it's a great memory.”

 Austin Croshere - “We got the loose balls in the second half that we didn't get in the first half. Those are the things we have to do. When you have to make up for a guy who scores 19, 20 points, you have to execute better. You have to do the little things.”

 Austin Croshere - “I've played on teams in the past where we had a really hard problem in the third quarter. We would come out and have a big lead at halftime and in the third quarter we would give it right back. I don't think it's a personality-type thing as a team to come out that way. Certainly it's been frustrating to play from a hole.”
 Austin Croshere - “It's a shame he never really got the opportunity to show people what he can do. We obviously saw glimpses of it in practice and in games.

I give him credit for calling it how he sees it.”
