"It felt great... going out there in front of the fans. I hadn't played in front of the fans since mid-July."
"It's tough to say. I had a little too many turnovers today, but I'll work on that. We're looking forward to having a good season."
"I wouldn't say nervous... over-anxious. Once I got settled in..."
"I'm not going to try to live up to any expectations. I just want to go out there with my team, compete hard, and win games. That's my focus."
"My team has expected me to come out and help have a better season than last year."
"Coach G has been emphasizing that... pushing the ball all year. That's what we'll be doing."
"We have the right pieces to push the tempo all game."
"Definitely. He has a wide base, explosive... he looks pretty strong."
"He was trying to show his muscles. That's Alejo... strength and conditioning has us right."
"It's a beginning of things to come. He has a super IQ. He threw the ball to me one time and I wasn't even looking... it was right there."
"I wouldn't say nerves.... I feel like our guards haven't played in a lot."
"I was just happy to see the fans again, happy to be out there."
"That's my goal for the season. I want to be dominant on the glass and play for my guys."
"We're not really worried about Omer because he's been playing basketball for a long time and playing with veteran guys so he'll pick it up real quick."
