Here's what Behanan had to say to the media during the event:
Q: Talk about what you have been doing in the offseason?
Behanan: Right now, I am working on ballhandling a lot and trying to stay in shape and conditioning. Build a lot of muscle and strength. Really just focus more than anything, focus, and do well in school. That's my life.
Q: Coach Pitino talked about you being in better shape?
Behanan: When did he say that? (Laugh). I think I am. We had our first little practice and I didn't get tired. He didn't have to take me out until the last few minutes. I think my conditioning is tremendous and I look forward to where it's going to be at for the start of the season.
Q: How much with the addition of Montrezl (Harrell) help you with some added competition and depth at your position?
Behanan: He's helping me a lot. He also helps me move to that position that I have always wanted to be, the three. So, that's why I am working hard on my ballhandling and my shooting in case I play some three. But he's really a big help. He gives us another rebounder, another long body, just a body that is ready to work.
Q: He hasn't been around long but is he (Harrell) as good as advertised?
Behanan: I'm not going to say anything. You are going to see. I'm not going to say nothing. He's real good. I'll leave it at that, real good.
Q: How excited are you guys about this season and like Peyton (Siva) has said don't you have to keep your head down and not worry about the hype?
Behanan: Like the coaches always say or give us examples when they see somebody acting up and will be like, ‘Leave the Final Four behind us' and things like that. But I think that's also why we have this excitement. When they bring up the Final Four in a workout, it's exciting. But we can't let the past dictate the future.
Q: For you to come back to Bowling Green like this and be like the rock star? How much fun is it for you?
Behanan: I love it. I love it. I'm just taking it all in and having fun and then it's on to the next one.
Q: The team is not satisfied, but with the strides you made throughout the season with you personally how much are you motivated?
Behanan: I know I need to work hard because I need to be one of the guys that steps up when we need somebody to step up.
Q: How good can you guys be?
Behanan: Real good. We have to stay healthy. If we stay healthy the whole season then I believe we can be real good.
Q: How are practices?
Behanan: They're fun. People are getting dunked on.
