Locker Room Report: Wolfpack Players

RALEIGH, N.C. -- NC State players met with the media following the Wolfpack's win over Georgia Tech.

Cameron Bennerman (1:45)

"Last week we wasn't focused. It's as simple as that. We didn't have that same focus as we normally did."

"I think he only scored 10 on me. He's a good player. I just wanted to apply the pressure that coach wanted me to. We've watched film on him and we know what he likes to do. I think I might have gave him two buckets. There was a three in the second half and a backdoor in the first, so I gave him two buckets."

"Georgia Tech started to get confident. With a team like that, they are very dangerous when they get confident and they could really hurt you."

Ilian Evtimov (1:24)

"To go over there and win, we're going to have to be extremely cautious and prepared."

"We're going to take what they give us."

"I just don't know who he hasn't gone off against this year."

Engin Atsur (1:12)

"They had a big run. We just couldn't score and couldn't get stops. In the second half, I think the key was that we had a great start."

"They did a great job. They kept pushing the ball and found guys. They made shots. We couldn't answer their transition offense."

"We were just more focused. When we want we can get stops. I guess our focus was much better in the second half."

Andrew Brackman (2:00)

"We haven't prepared anything on Duke yet, and now we have four days to prepare for Duke. It's going to be fun."

"We got up and then they just came right back. They were really, really determined to come back and try to gut out a win."

Tony Bethel (1:28)

"That was a key in the second half, get the ball inside to Ced. When we made that run, that's what we did. We got the ball inside, and he was able to kick it outside to guys for open shots."

"I add some experience and some leadership... just looking to play hard. It's a great team effort, and that's what we are about."

"It's obvious, on the defensive end and offensive end. He's our big defensive stopper and he's our go-to man on the inside."

Cedric Simmons (2:16)

"I was being aggressive... a whole lot more aggressive. I was putting a body on guys and just walking through them."

"I've just got to be a step ahead on defense. Show my hands a lot more, and use my feet... instead of my upper body."
