UNC-CU: Oliver Purnell Quotes

CLEMSON, S.C. – Tigers head coach Oliver Purnell addressed the media following the Tar Heels' 77-58 win over Clemson on Wednesday …

On having a hard time getting started:
"The score was 8-0, we were not aggressive early. In the second half, the intensity level wasn't the same as the first half. Cliff [Hammonds] made key shots,, but the team didn't get in the press early. Our transition was key; our guard play was not good and it hurt us."

On the play of Cheyenne Moore:
"He was more relaxed. He was a big part of the first half."

On UNC's talent:
"Very deep. They are deep, especially at point guard, gave us problems."

On Sharrod Ford picking up his aggressiveness:
"The game as a whole was ugly, good for us, low scoring, but we could not score. They broke it open."

On the win at FSU and the loss to Va. Tech:
"We need to play aggressive. I saw some bright spots, but we need to be consistent. We could not score at key points."

On no starter making a field goal until five minutes in:
"We needed a bigger game out of Shawan Robinson."
