Locker Room Report: Wolfpack Players

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Cat Barber and Abdul-Malik Abu met with the media after the loss to Georgia Tech.

"We just have to come out and be ready. Today in the first half we didn't come out, but in the second half we came out with energy."

"We have to get it together some way."

"Coach is asking what we're going to do right now. We came out and played good in the second half."

"For us to win we have to play good for 40 minutes."

"I came out and still scored 30-something points so I don't think [the injury] was a factor."

"Plays that can't happen. I'm not going to blame it on Malik, there's a lot of things that happen in the game."

"There's little things that hurt us."

"We have to lock in on the defensive end."

"It's mental. You have to be locked in on defense."

"I was trying to win... trying to make plays after play. I'll do anything to help my team.  That's what I was trying to do."

"They kept getting rebounds and putbacks or rebounds to set their offense back up."

"I just feel like we are capable of coming out and playing for 40 minutes. We just have to find it.  It's not there yet."

"It's sad right now because we're not winning games, but we can't swell on it.  Every game is different."

"It's little stuff that hurts us.... we're right there."  

"We have to turn the corner."

"We didn't come out with a good enough effort or intensity to compete in the first half."

"I should have grabbed the rebound and it slipped out of my hands and they scored.  I wasn't mad at the call."

"The best way to step out of it is to put your efforts toward getting better."

"We have to pick it up."

"To man up, go out there and play... no excuse for the way we performed.  It was all really on us."

"In the open court I don't think anybody can even stop him.  More importantly we just want to win."

"We definitely want to win as a team. We lose as a team."

"It's on us as players."

"Going forward, putting two halves together..."

"You know these games are important."

"It's either do what you can and try to succeed or tuck it in... we're going to keep fighting and try to find a way to win these games."
