"Obviously it's a big win for us and our guys. I really liked the way we came out with great energy."

"I loved the way it ended, and I'm proud of the effort."

"I thought all of the guys came in and played well for us... I thought the first group was very good. Our defense was excellent, offensively against their zone we executed, we got wide open looks."

"I thought Lorenzo Brown did well, C.J. Leslie came in, C.J.'s been sick the last couple of days and didn't practice yesterday so he didn't start today."

"The last minute and a half or so I made a defensive change, I put C.J. Williams in and Richard Howell in. Those guys are more experienced, they know what to do and they did the right thing defensively."

"We went with a defensive group and those guys executed it perfectly."

"I'd rather have that scenario... that's the frustrating part. Once you get up in the ballgame you don't try and create things that are not there."

"Knowing how to force teams to stay on defense and not take the quick shot... that takes a lot of patience and poise."

"Ryan is smart. He's a very intelligent basketball player and a very intelligent young man."

"Remember what we did, remember how we dug in defensively the last two possessions."

"It was big to win a close game like this for this team."

"Richard was really good. He started with great energy, rebounding, passing, and scoring. I thought he got a little tired... but he was really good. Richard is another player that understands what we're doing offensively and defensively."

"The play tonight was because Richard was playing well."

"We're trying to develop players, which we have a lot of young guys and they have to get more experience, but at the end of the day you have to play guys that are getting it done."

"They all are must wins for me... it was a big win. We're trying to start something and we were at home. There was a lot of riding on that."

"I was really touched just seeing coach Case's, just being there and seeing it."

"We told our guys we had one to give. If they catch it when you go, go for ball, if Thomas gets it. If Grant gets it on the perimeter, you get up in him. If he puts it on the ground you really go for the ball, try to get a steal."

"I told our guys to be active... but we're not going to give them a three."

"We'll see how we play."
