Locker Room Report: Wolfpack Players

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Several NC State players met with the media after the win over Georgia Southern.

"It was fun, getting out there to compete under the real lights."

"Now it's real. Every win counts, and every loss counts."

"I knew a lot of guys on the Georgia Southern team, and they have a lot of returners. They were a good team last year."

"I knew that would be a test for us because we are young, new and playing together. I believe we handled it well."

"Instincts took over and in winning time we had to turn it up and get a win. I had to make a play."

"They started getting offensive rebounds and attacking the glass."

"As long as they were missing free throws I knew we were in striking defense."

"We have a group of guys that won't quit.  It was fun."

"That's what I sat out for this whole time, for moments like this to make my free throws and close the game out."

"We're a team and everybody contributes, but we want to win first."

"I was out there playing and trying to win."

"That's the Terry we know... that's the Terry you guys didn't know and I'm glad you guys got to see it."

"It's a special group of guys, and Terry is one of them."

"When the going got tough in the last couple of possessions of the game we were all locked in to it."

"I feel like this game is a blessing."

"It's going to be a grind."

"You have to face adversity."

"It's big-time. It helps me out and rebounds is a key part of the game."
