John Neal On Texas


"We didn't finish the game like we wanted to and like we were capable of. We gave up some lay-ups and stuff like that. We won the game. We just need to move forward. We have Texas coming in on "Big Monday."


On playing on national television


"We've got guys from all over the country playing here. It's a way for their families to be able to see them since it's on national television. It's a good way to show the world exactly what you can do."


On his game vs. Kansas State


"It felt good to come in and be able to help the team."


"I really don't know what other teams say about me or their scouting reports on me. Obviously once I hit a couple down they moved in but I was just trying to stay aggressive. I just look for my shot and if it's there I try and knock it down."


"When you're knocking shots down you're definitely going to feel more confident. It's nice to knock some shots down and get in a good rhythm. Hopefully I can keep it going for the rest of the season."


"We've got a lot of guys that can play on the perimeter. We have a young front court but the guys that can play on the perimeter. Obviously you've got Curt and Will. I'm just going to continue to come in and play hard on offense and defense."
