BRAD BROWNELL: (9:46)
"We just got rocked early. N.C. State played really well. I didn't think
our defense was terrible, but they made shots. I thought offensively we
were better than the score was indicating. We just didn't make shots. We
got a little tight, but we just kept imploring our guys to hang in there
and improve defensively, then we could go on a run and momentum would help
us a bit. In the second half, both teams struggled. We won the game with
our defense in the last 28 or 30 minutes."
On how his team came back throughout the game:
"I just think that things get going well for a team and things get going
bad like they were for us at the beginning. I'm calling timeouts and
coaching and everything and nothing is working. We didn't make any drastic
changes that changed the game, and I don't think Sidney (Lowe) did
anything different. We got momentum and our guys just started to make
On his team's rebounding edge: "We got them to shoot a low percentage, but N.C. State is a pretty good
offensive rebounding team. For us to keep them off the glass and not give
up those putbacks that break your back was key for us in the run."
On the impact of Scott Wood: "The scare was that Scott Wood would start making shots and it would open
everything else up. Then the inside game gets going when you over-help to
Scott Wood and you can't get it shut off. That was a major concern. A
couple of times, our big guys switched out onto Wood to take away a shot
or at least make him take a tougher shot."
On the play of Bryan Narcisse: "He plays hard. He's out there giving it his all, and he's long. He covers
a lot of ground and space. His arms are long and he has big strides, so he
just covers a lot of space. He's been doing it a while now. He is a
junior, so it's time for him to do these things."
