UNC-Clemson Locker Room Report

Jawad Williams

On Adam Boone's block of Tomas Nagy's shot:

"(laughing) Adam got real lucky on that."

On his comfort level today:

"I felt very comfortable and able to get into the flow of the game. It doesn't really matter to me if I am starting or coming off the bench, I know my role and what Coach is expecting me to do. I am just trying to contribute as much as I can."

On the team's attitude coming into Clemson after last year:

"I wasn't here last year, but we were all aware that they knocked us out of our number one ranking. We wanted to play well for that, but we needed to play well today for this year's team's progress. We'll enjoy this tonight and start getting ready for Duke tomorrow."

Jason Capel On coming back from the concussion:

"I could have played more, except for my foul trouble. Everybody was contributing, though, and that made it much easier to take."

On the team's overall performance:

"I think we really attacked them, and we're at our best when that's how we play. In other games, we sort of sat back and let them bring the game to us, but today we played with confidence and showed what we can do."

On Joe Everett's reverse layup:

"(laughing) Somebody needs to print that Joe Everett hit a reverse layup with his nasty left hand - we need more of those."

Adam Boone

On the blocked shot:

"It felt really good. Jason says that I'm not there for him (on the blocks) but I was able to get that one."

On the banked three point shot:

"You can all believe what you want to believe, but it was the perfect time and angle for a bank shot, so that's what I was trying to do. I was definitely trying to bank it." (Other players indicated joking disbelief at this statement.)

On his career high in points and rebounds:

"I was playing aggressively and with confidence. Coach has been encouraging me to be aggressive with my game, and today it all seemed to work for me. I feel great."
