"I thought our guys really continued to play unselfish basketball. I think that is evident by the fact that on our 32 field goals we had 26 assists. I thought guys really looked to share the basketball and make each other better."

"It's just a component of our Princeton offense."

"Like I've been saying, we always talk about it. Sometimes we don't execute it or sometimes we don't get it because the defense is back, but despite some's propensity to put labels on things, we're fine scoring in transition if the opportunity presents itself."

"Tonight it was available and we took advantage of it, even though the shot clock wasn't expiring."

"But it's people who don't know the Princeton offense so you have to sometimes consider that. There is always a place in anybody's offense for a good low post player. You can't name one offense that has ever been constructed that isn't better when there is good low post play. Princeton, Georgia, Vermont, Tennessee offense, you name it. It's better when there is a good low post game, and Cedric has certainly showed great improvement."

"I think for the most part it was a good effort. Our team has continued to work hard in practice. Tonight included I see signs that we are continuing to get better."

"[Engin] is a great competitor. Nobody felt worse about Iowa than he did. Over the course of his career he really has been the model of consistency. With Engin you basically know what you are going to get night in and night out."
