"I thought we played a solid game. I thought our defense again was good for the most part. It enabled us to get some runs. Offensively we moved the ball around real well and had a couple guys make some shots."

"We gave up something too easy and allowed them to get in it. We can't come out that way."

"I wasn't pleased with our effort when we first came out, but I was very pleased with the way reacted."

"C.J. [Williams] is a freshman. He's a freshman. C.J. is a solid player. He's going to make some mistakes, but I'm still pleased with the way he plays. He's a smart player, and he's going to be a very good player for us."

"He's playing the two-guard position, and as you know most teams their twos are pretty good players. He's going to get some lessons night-in and night-out, but I think in the long run he's going to figure it all out. We believe in him, and he's going to do a good job."

"It allows us to push the ball. Last year we could have done it maybe early in the season... now with both of those guys in there. Farnold can push it, Javy can push it, and they are going to make the right decisions. It gives us an opportunity to get those easy baskets which we need to get."

"I think both of them are capable. Farnold is still not 100% I don't think yet, but he's getting there. Neck-and-neck, and if they both are good, that's good by me."

"I don't mind them shooting, as long as it's not too far back. Step up to the three-line and if you're open, you shoot it."

"I like the way we just hung in there. We came back... I liked the way we picked it up and got back into it and made plays."

"It's going to be tough game for us so we've got to go down there and be focused."

"You're always concerned when you're playing against a good player."

"Some of these guys you're not going to stop completely because they are good, but you've got to make it tough for them."
