"Obviously we can still get a lot better in a lot of areas, but a lot of guys did a lot of good things for our team."

"I can go through every guy."

"We kind of have Tyler and Cat, collectively, those guys are playing well."

"Defensively we were a lot better In the second half than we were in the first half, I thought that was probably the difference in the game."

"Both guys – Tyler and Cat – they are different players altogether. They bring a different set of strengths."

"We are seeing a lot of zone – I thought there was a point earlier in the year where we really struggled against it. But I think we are getting more confident against the zone."

"In the second half we seemed to make them a little bit more uncomfortable."

"The last time we played them we were all in foul trouble – T.J. fouled out. Overall we've made some steps to get better. You want your teams to play their best in February and March and that's our goal."

"He's one of the best I've coached and I've had some good players play for me. But he has a knack to score in such a variety of ways, it's unique. And now he's making the 3, he's improved as a foul shooter. He's a really gifted offensive player."
