"The one thing that has been difficult is you don't know sometimes until really late in the process whether you're going to have a home game or an away game and that has a domino effect on the rest of your schedule. Early on we expected to have a home game this year."

"It's getting better. I thought for the most part we had excellent concentration and intensity on Saturday night."

"As you go through the season, sometimes those roles. I think our guys for the most part have really done a good job of coming together early in the season."

"We have to work better with positioning... we have to work better at blocking out."

"I think Iowa is clearly one of the premier teams in the country. I think Iowa has a legitimate chance to compete for a championship this year, both in the Big 10 and on the national level. I think they have demonstrated that level of play here early in the season."

"They are a team I find challenging to prepare for. I think they have the total package. You can see why so many people are so high on Iowa this year."

"We appreciate anybody who would consider us favorably. I think it's a good thing to have high expectations for your basketball program. We want to be highly thought of."
