VIDEO: Postgame Interviews

RALEIGH, N.C. -- NC State's Mark Gottfried, Rodney Purvis, C.J. Leslie, and Scott Wood talk about the 82-64 win over Boston College.

"It would take you a couple of days, have your feelings hurt... it's tough. I think he's come back. He's had a great attitude in practice, he's worked really hard in practice, and then all of a sudden... you play well."

"I thought he was good. I thought he was unselfish, he passed the ball, he rebounded."

"We had one two games ago against Florida State. We've won four out of five. The sky's not falling, we're still swinging. I think our guys have some confidence... we have won four out of five, and I think our guys are excited about trying to finish the year really well. That's something they want."

"We just need to keep getting better, like I mentioned earlier."

"Calvin, I thought he was good. It was a game where some other guys were scoring the ball, and he was very unselfish. He played pretty good defense, so he did a good job."

"He actually told me his ankle was really hurting him there. Once we got a comfortable lead and Tyler was playing well there really wasn't a need to put him back in."

"We just have to make sure we try and do everything to get him to 100%."

"That's important for us to get him healthy. We've got to get him there."

"Here's the deal, we're 20-8. We played three games without Lorenzo, maybe we could have won a couple of those, who knows? Maybe not. We're probably not where we want to be, but we're still in a good position... we'll see. We'll save the grade for later. I'm not ready to grade us yet."

"He hung in there with it. He got the first one blocked, got it back and made a big shot."

"I think there is a lot of even teams. On a given night, boy, that's what makes college basketball fun and it's what is going to make the tournament amazing."

"There are a lot of teams around the country, and we're one of them, that can play with anybody."

"The last few weeks have been really tough for me, but never did I get down on myself."

"School, things like that. I just had a lot on my mind. I'm not the type to make excuses."

"I was losing a little confidence in myself, but I just stayed motivated."

"Getting the ball out in transition, finishing, having fun and playing basketball."

"We're winning, so I'm good."

"I stayed mentally tough and confident."

"I'm all for the team. I wasn't playing well so there was no need for me to be in the game."

"I would go out there and miss layups, and I deserved to sit on the bench."

"Just relaxing and having fun."

"Tyler Lewis did a great job with his passing tonight."

"Staying down in your stance, the main thing is getting down in your stance and playing 40 minutes of defense."

"We can't give up on a play."

"I think it was big, especially to prove to ourselves that when we're committed on the defensive end we can play some good basketball."

"When we're guarding like we're capable of doing we're a good team."

"Anytime we can get him transition he's a lethal player."

"For the most part we did a pretty good job of closing out hard and make them take contested ones."
