Locker Room Report: NC State

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Several NC State players met with the media to discuss the game against Louisville.

Lennard Freeman

"We can't have a slow start. We're trying to focus on Harrell and Rozier."

"I heard coach G was saying that Rozier has a mega green light now."

"We all can do things well."

"I knew that was the head of the Louisville team."

BeeJay Anya

"We tried to keep a body on him and max his intensity the entire game. He plays really hard."

"All four of us are good at certain things, but we all have our one specialty. Kyle is a great scorer. Malik's athletic ability is off the charts. Lennard is one of the best rebounders in the country when he gets his opportunities. I'm a defensive player, and I'm probably the best defensive big on the team."

"I think it's our depth. We can go deep in to our bench."

"Kyle came off the bench and played great."

Cat Barber

"He has a quick pull-up release and he can play defense as well."

"He's a great player."

"He just believes in everybody."

"I see a lot. I don't really go on Twitter and just read stuff."

"I think defense is the key. They have a lot of guys that can score the ball."

"We have to come out and get stops."

"When we have a fast start, we have a chip on our shoulder like we're going to win this basketball game."

Kyle Washington

"I'm just happy that it's showing."

"We can do a lot of things, and we're versatile in many different ways."

"I think he sparked our offensive run in the second half."

"I'm just saying ready. Doing what I do... being aggressive offensively and being sound defensively."

"We were sound on defensively and really did a good job of making sure our gameplan was excecuted."

Desmond Lee

"We know that they are going to come out and give us their best shot."

"They are going to try and get back at us."

"We're trying to prepare for that... match their intensity."

"It's very important for us to come out fast."

"We know how tough it is to come from behind."
