On if the Gophers will be able to stop their current losing streak:
"Yeah, I think so. We've got a lot of home games coming up here and anytime you play in front of your home crowd here you should get that win. In order to be a great team in this league you got to win at home. We had a couple slip-ups here lately but we've got a good stretch coming up here that we can do well but we got to take it one step at a time."

On Chip Armelin and Austin Hollins stepping-up to fill the void left by Al Nolen:
Chip [Armelin] and Austin [Hollins] have definitely done a great job, as well as Maverick. I mean they've all kind of filled in that role once Al [Nolen] went down. I mean the new guards needed to step-up and fill that role and they've done a great job so far. Austin played outstanding in the Indiana game and Chip played well last game.
