Locker Room Report: Wolfpack Players

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Ralston Turner and Trevor Lacey met with the media following the win over Richmond.

Ralston Turner

"Unfortunately yes, that's two close games we've had to win."

"The good thing about today is we did a better job of finishing. The last game against South Florida we didn't finish down the stretch. That's one thing we wanted to do a better job of today."

"Anytime you're playing a game before Thanksgiving it's always good to get the win."

"We knew they were talented. We just did a bad job of locating guys in the first half.

"They got a lot of open shots, but you need to give credit to them. They did a good job of running their offense."

"We didn't let them score as fast, and also we got rebounds. The main thing is we hit free throws down the stretch."

"We're playing okay. We still have a lot of work to do. It's still early in the season and we're still growing."

Trevor Lacey

"I just tried to take advantages of the switches... my jump shot was going. I just shot it."

"We needed those. We didn't get any stops in the first half. They were making shots, got to give them credit... we struggled stopping them in the first half."

"We knew they were going to come in and play us hard. We know we just have to keep executing. Today we made our free throws down the stretch."

"We made an adjustment. We started to pressure the ball a little more. We denied their two scoring guards and tried to make someone else make plays. In the first half the bigs stepped up and made big shots for them... we kind of challenged them in the second half."

"Bringing BeeJay and Kyle away from the rim... the rim protectors weren't there."

"It was kind of difficult for us in the first half, but we made the adjustment."

"We took care of the ball, mainly because we got shots."

"Just ball pressure. In the first half we really weren't pressuring the ball, we were worried with their backdoors.. in the second half we were more aggressive and not really worried about the backdoors. We just played defense like we normally do."

"Just stay consistent defensively and offensively, BeeJay got it going... keep feeding our bigs and keep them involved in the attack."

"Coach Gottfried mentioned that today. The schedule is what it is, so we can be prepared in March."

"Richmond is a good team... today they gave us their best shot."
