"We knew they had great guards like Quinn and Falls. I think the key was our coaching staff did a good job with the scouting report and the guys really did a good job of studying their plays and personnel."

"I'm confident. I try to get better in every practice and game with my defense. Saturday it was all the guys on the team. We did a great job on the defensive side. When we shut down a guy it's not just one guy. It's a team effort."

"It's just another game. Of course it would be good for the ACC. I'm sure other teams would be happy, and I would be happy if another ACC team would get a win, but we don't think like that. It's just another game."

"I think it's just another road game at Iowa. We know they have a great basketball team. We have to do our homework in two games and get ready."

"I've seen them play against Kentucky. Obviously they have a great team."

"They have great guards and they have big guys who are pretty good too. They have a complete team and in every position we have to do a good job defensively."
