"I've just been getting a lot of
shots in the gym lately, a lot of extra practice, and it ahs been very helpful
and has paid off. I'm starting to become more comfortable and I'm getting used
to the system Coach McDermott is running and everything is flowing for us right
now. We just need to work hard to get better as a team,"
"I probably wouldn't have guessed that we could do that," McDermott told the media after the game. "Especially without Jiri" [Hubalek].
"It's not going to be much fun," McDermott said. "It's a no win deal for me."
Though McDermott isn't looking forward to Wednesday night, he still knows what he needs to do.
"They mean a great deal to me. I am going to put together a plan that gives us the opportunities to win," McDermott said about the match up.
"The whole team is aware of the
importance of the game and it is just another reason to go that much harder for
coach McDermott," said
Gray also had the hot hand on Saturday night. Gray went 6-7 from the field as he scored 14 points coming off the bench.
"I'm starting to get used to the brace and I'm starting to get in the rhythm of the game lately," Gray said.
It's notable that Gray had been missed a few games this year with a cracked bone in his hand.
