Opening Statement…
"We are very thankful for the win tonight. They're a good team with good, tall posts and the team is always well-coached. They gave us a lot of match-up problems trying to guard their motion offense. I thought our kids showed a lot of poise and came back. You always worry after coming off big wins, so we're growing up and we showed a lot of character tonight. I have to compliment North Dakota State


On improvements he is looking for during the tournament in Puerto Rico...
On Rodney Williams…
"We don't know yet. He may have sprained his ankle. He felt like he turned it, so we're not sure what happened yet. He'll be having an MRI to check it out."

On Blake Hoffarber becoming a multi-dimensional player…
"He's doing a good job. He's curling into the basket and he's making a lot of short shots. I was really impressed with his assists. With 24 points and four assists, he had a pretty good game."
