On Cornell…
"Anytime you're playing a good three-point shooting team like them it's going to be tough all night. They're hitting their threes all night…have to give them their credit. They played very well tonight and had a tough battle against us."

On free throw shooting…
"I think any game you have to hit free throws and it showed it tonight…We almost lost because we were shooting poorly from the free throw line…We just have to forget about it and we know we have a tough St. Joe's team we have to play this coming week, so we just have to go back to our fundamentals."


On free throws…
"We had to pick it up in other areas on the defensive end and be more patient on the offensive end…We knew that we had troubles with free throws but we still wanted to get to the free throw line and put their players in foul trouble, and they did play a little more reserved and that's also a boost for our team."

On Trevor Mbakwe's game…
"He played a very tough game, very physical inside. He got to the line a lot for us, which also is a boost for us…He was a big part of tonight's game and a big part of this team for the win."
