Locker Room Report: Wolfpack Players

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

"I want to spend time with my family. That's all I want for Christmas."

"It hit us pretty hard. We made it through."

"It's very exciting. Everyday we play hard, practice hard, and my teammates... we hav ea connection, a brotherhood."

"It's like I'm playing with my family."

"When Corch scores, it just brings you up."

"We always want to have good games, even though sometimes it gets a little rough. Good games are always the best."

"He's Dennis... tonight he was very energetic. It was like I was seeing Team Loaded Dennis all over again."

"Now that everyone is clicking together it's becoming easier and more fun for us to play."

"Mav, when he was out, he came back and he was a little rough, you could tell he was sitting out. Now he's found his groove and back in it full force."

"We need somebody to hit big-time shots like that."

"I wouldn't say I'm looking for it more. It's falling more, so I'll take more.  I put a lot of work into it."

"It's great. That's what the plan was, to come in and dominate, start our break on the right foot. It was really great to win the game the way we did."

"He saw I was hot from the start so he called my number."

"I think we are. It started with App State. That was the first nonconference game we won like we were supposed to."

"Our focus... that's the game Omer came back, and having him back, everybody could lock in... he and Maverick came back at the same time; once again, it's a team effort."

"It was very important. He spaces the floor and gets everybody open. He can just score... drive, pull-up.  He gives the guys a break. There's no drop-off when he comes in the game."

"My teammates are finding me, getting me open. They set great screens."

"Everybody gets to rest... to go down and see their families."

"I didn't know it was 20... that's the way it's supposed to be in the nonconference."

"It was pretty difficult, when I had my concussion I wasn't able to run... for two and half weeks I wasn't able to do much."

"I've been slowly working my way back."

"I'm feeling pretty good... my teammates are around me helping me."

"It was my first concussion. I never had any headaches or anything... after my concussion I was having constant headaches."

"It's definitely an adjustment, starting last year to coming off the bench, but whatever works for my team. We're winning games; I can't complain about that."

"After the game I felt it immediately.  I continued to play, which I probably shouldn't have."

"You don't realize how bad a concussion is until you have one. I couldn't do anything... run or shoot.  I had to take it easy. Sometimes I wasn't able to go to practice."

"I feel real comfortable out there."

"It wasn't his fault."

"He's a big teddy bear."
