Locker Room Report: Wolfpack Players

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Several NC State players met with the media following the loss to UNC.

Ralston Turner

"It was very frustrating because at the time I felt like I had some success on a few plays."

"I definitely think it hurt us, but at the same time I have faith in my guys."

"I just think it was mental mistakes. It's not something we practiced or have been doing here lately."

"You still need to get the ball where you want to."

"At the end of the day we were able to get back in the game."

"Give credit to North Carolina. You can't take that away from them. As far as us, we didn't play to our capabilities in the first half and that put us in a hole."

"Mental errors... that's all it was."

Kyle Washington

"We just have to communicate better."

"I was proud of all our guys, but we simply gave one away."

"He just went on us and deservedly so. We weren't playing hard at all and we were down six."

"That's a good UNC team, but we gave one away."

"Our potential as a team is great, but we have to play hard all the time."

"They got a few in the end... we just need to do a better job with that. That comes with me first."

"He's good. I've been playing with him since eighth grade. He's from Iowa, I'm from Minnesota. I knew he had ice water in his veins."

"He's a great competitor."

"Just drop it and say that's one loss."

"I thought we would because in the first half we weren't playing hard enough."

"I believe in our team."

Trevor Lacey

"Pretty much the same. They pushed me around."

"I just.. they pushed me around and I got a little frustrated and started to look for calls when I should have just kept playing. In the second half I put that behind and kept playing."

"He did a good job. I feel like I still got my shots. I just didn't make a couple of shots I normally make. It can both ways. It can be I'm making shots or it's good defense. He played good defense tonight."

"Not really, it's one of those situations where you've just got to try and miss and get the soft bounce."

"We feel like if we would have played two halves it would have been a different outcome."

"We have to play 40 minutes."

"They slowed it down and tried to keep Cat out of transition."

"They really made us work for everything. That's what good teams do."

"We knew what this game meant for our team and this area. We just came up short."

"We didn't defend them well in the first half. You have to give them some credit."

"I think guys are comfortable in their roles."
