NCAA: NC State Players Audio + Quotes

DALLAS, TX -- NC State players met with the media today to discuss the upcoming game against No. 2 seed Texas.

Evtimov, Bethel, Bennerman Press Conference (10:12)

"When he gets going it makes it easier for all of us."

"It's one game at a time. There is no chance to come back and lose and win a game. If you lose you're going home. We've had a good season, and we deserve to be here."

"We've played at some tough places all year long. I think that the ACC has us prepared for that."

"We know most fans here are going to be from Texas. There's going to be a lot of orange. We know that the game is played on the court. It's five-on-five, that's it. There's only five people on the court that have control of the game."

"If anybody thinks that NC State is not successful, and they think that NC State is not becoming a better program over the last couple of years, I'm sorry but I would have to call them an idiot. We've showed over and over that we belong in the tournament. We've done well and when you get 20+ wins every season you're a good program. There's a lot of people who would want to be in our shoes. Duke and Carolina, they are very good programs as well. They have established themselves as the top two programs in the nation for the past 20 years. Obviously that's a lot of competition, but that's definitely something we want to be. We want to be a program like that as well."
