Locker Room Report: Wolfpack Players

COLUMBUS, OH -- Several NC State players met with the media following the Pack's win over San Diego State.

Alex Johnson
"We just wanted to keep our composure. San Diego State is a great basketball team with great players."

"They are going to make their run. When they make their run we want to make our run and answer back."

"Different games it will be someone different. Today DeShawn stepped up big, Scott... Rich. It can be different people."

Scott Wood
"When you see a couple of shots go in you think they all are going in."

"It's definitely a great asset for our team."

"I don't want to go home, my family like 2.5 hours away. I got to see them and spend time with them so there is no point in leaving."

"Coach Gottfried's first year, we're still getting into his offense and learning things everyday."

C.J. Williams

"We knew they were going to come out and play with a lot more energy when they got down... we wanted to answer the call every time."

"They give us a lot. Lorenzo is a great point guard, he sets the table for us... C.J. inside, his athleticism provides a mismatch for us on both ends."

"They are doing a great job and it has propelled us."

"We knew they didn't have anybody as unique as Rich is. His skillset is amazing for a player his size... we wanted to take advantage of that and use him more."

"I was shocked at first, I didn't know what he wanted me to do."

DeShawn Painter

"I was just playing my role. When I go in there they expect me to knock down open shots and play good defense."

"It's really tough. It's one of those things where you've got to knuckle up and get it done."

"He's always got confidence, but he was knocking his shot down and got it going early."

"Lorenzo can do that on a consistent basis. He's just a great player. He can co it all. He's really a team guy and wants to see us all do good. That's what gets him going."

C.J. Leslie

"It was a good game, it was a very good game."

"Howell, he had a lot of wide open shots and he can score the ball. He can definitely hit that 18 foot shot. We trust him to do that."

"It's the object, to get the ball down there and score."

"It feels great. We're looking forward to getting prepared to play again on Sunday."

"We're very happy. We're just getting our mindset ready for Sunday."
