Q: Would you talk about the strength of this team?

A: We have a very good and balance game. I think the outside game has improved from last year. The inside game, even with the lost of Ed Dotson, I think we have guys that will step up to fill the void.

Q: Would you compare to the talents on this team to the one of last year?

A: I think we're more complete. We're a lot younger and we have a lot more depth and shooters. I think we defiantly have a better team then last year. We lot a lot of good talents.

A: I got five classes left. I have five classes in the spring and two in the summer.

Q: After basketball here at UCF, what do you want to do?

A: I want to take a chance with the pro teams in Spain. I have a very good chance with them. I have confidence that I'll be playing professionally oversea.

Q: Would you talk about Dexter Lyons

A: He's hard. He's full of energy and gets the team going. He gives a lot of efforts and he's a show man. I love that guy. I am glad that I have a chance play with him last year and this year.
