AUDIO: Lacey, Washington Talk Wake Forest

RALEIGH, N.C. -- NC State's Trevor Lacey and Kyle Washington discuss the ACC opener against Wake Forest with the media.

Trevor Lacey

"It's going to be good to come out and play an ACC team."

"It's not going to be easy. They have good guards."

"I will start out on [Miller-McIntyre]... we have to load up as a team and not let him get to the rim."

"It's going to be good to come out and play in front of the home crowd again. We're doing well at home."

"We have to execute down the stretch and make our free throws."

"We saw other things we could do better, rebounding, defensive adjustments."

"It would be great to come out 1-0 in the league. That's what we want to do, when every game, but it will let us know where we're at with different styles of play."

"They've had seven games to scout us and can take away some of the things we like to do."

"We like it when Kyle's scoring like that. We don't tell him not to shoot, we just tell him to be smart on when to be aggressive. I think he's picking up on it and understanding that's how he had a big night the other night."

"I saw it on film. I was here watching it and on the play they showed that he had a hop-step in there."

"He's a great player. He can probably make that same play without traveling."

"He shouldn't have been able to even make that play. We'll learn from that."

Kyle Washington

"I have to stay aggressive and do what my team needs."

"Rebound and play defense."

"My mindset has changed a little bit."

"You would probably say that, it was probably the best game of my career personally."

"We didn't execute enough. They executed their gameplan."

"We're all excited for Wake Forest at home. Devin Thomas is a good player so we have to stay focused on him."

"It was a bad memory, maybe a little bit too many steps, but we're focused for it. All the coaches did a great job of scouting them."

"We're ready for them."

"It does but you have to let it go at the end of the day."

"The ACC is the best conference, to me at least."

"We have to be ready every night, night in and night out."

"We're ready."
