OVERALL: "I was very impressed with the Western Carolina team and their play thus
far in their league. We got off to a rough start and didn't have as much
focus, but we got in the fight, which was important. We got the pace going
the way we wanted 10-12 minutes before the half. It was a dogfight down
the stretch; we missed free throws, which was tough down the line. We were
able to limit their big kid and played good defense. Offensively, we did
what we wanted; defensively, we didn't rebound like we wanted but we got
cleaned up. It was a good win going into Christmas."
ON THE BOOKER BROTHERS: "They meant a lot in the 19-0 run. Devin carried us for that 3-4 minute
stretch and did a good job on the boards. It's good that we converted, and
that run sealed the deal. I stress about playing for each other, and when
they're on the floor together, they play for one another. I think that the
guys play better like that than when they're playing as individuals."
ON DEVIN LEARNING FROM TREVOR: "He's learned a tremendous amount. Anytime you're playing with a senior
and sometimes against him, you're going to learn a lot. Tonight the
brother combo was as effective as Clemson has seen in years. The last
three or four games, Trevor has been a bear on the glass, or with scoring
or assisting. He is the difference."
