"I knew I could do it. Honestly, I don't think anybody can stay in front of me. When I want to get to the basket, I can get there. That has never been an issue. It's just time and score," he said.
However, Maze insisted he was not knocking UK's defense.
"John Wall is a fast player, but people don't realize that when the lane is open, it's hard for anybody to keep anybody in front of them because I know what I want to do," Maze said.
"It's just like when John Wall is out in transition. That's where he is so hard to guard. You know he is going to attack the basket, but when he is running full speed ahead of you, how can you defend that?
You just want to try and stay in front of him and hope he either travels or loses the ball. It's hard to stop anybody when they are running full speed at you."
