"We really had our work cut out for us to keep Wake off the glass. They came into the game leading our conference in rebounding and they did nothing to hurt their margin in that area today."

"I was really proud with the way our guys responded after falling behind by 13. I thought our crowd was great helping us stay competitive, and it was certainly a quality win."

"That's been fairly consistent. That's kind of the way we've been playing. We've kind of been a little bit like Baskin and Robbins. We've had a lot of different looks and flavors."

"The outside shot wasn't falling for us. Tonight Wake was playing good defense and a few didn't go down for us. Our guys were good enough to adjust and find other ways to score."

"Our guys did a really good job at the free throw line. Obviously 37-of-43 is terrific shooting. Our guys went to the line with a lot of poise and made free throws. If we wasn't able to do that tonight we would not have won."

"Cameron has had a terrific senior season so far. He's played both ends of the floor, and tonight he was perfect free throw shooting and did a good job in really ever area. He's played a good, solid all-around basketball game."

"I think our team has a very good basketball IQ. They pick things up very well. For the most part they have been very receptive to us coaching them. With that kind of ability and that kind of mindset you have the best chance of getting better."

"No player in our league it seems has been on a tear like he has. We watched tape of their game against Maryland and he was making four-point shots falling out of bounds... really some indefensable shots. I thought Cameron and Engin both did a good job. He probably missed some shots that on other nights he's going to make, and that helps too."
