"The guys that are returning are excited - they've worked extremely hard. We are going to have a lot of new faces - I don't know that there are a lot of teams in the country that have lost as much as we lost from last year to next year so we have a big challenge ahead."

"There's still a lot of positive things that happened this year - just not as many as we'd like."

"Now its time to somewhat turn the page and get onto the next chapter."

"A lot of teams have to rebuild or reload year to year, its not uncommon for college basketball. We are going to have some tough things to fill."

"I'm excited for Tyler and think Tyler is going to have a really good future at NC State, Cat will as well."

"We're going to put the five best players on the floor and play a lot of different combinations. [Lewis and Barber] don't need to be pitted against one another."

"TJ is going to be in a great position next year to have a good year."

"The first thing with Desmond is that he's a little bit older which is good for our team because we are going to be awfully young and inexperienced."

"He's a combo guy that can play with the ball or without. He's a good guard and that's what I think our team needed at this point."

"This team coming up will have to learn itself - learn who can do what."
