What was the specific difference in why you chose to attend North Carolina over Kentucky?

"Obviously the two styles of play, they tend to slow it down a little more than we slow it down and set up the offense, and I was looking to be more in the open court."

You've got a very developed hook shot - can you talk about how you developed it with both hands?

"In high school that was the move I used a lot because you get a lot of double teams and triple teams and there's not room to operate so you have to do something quick with the ball. I really worked on the jump hook going to my right shoulder and developing more my left shoulder - it's just something I've been working on since the beginning of my high school days."

Do you feel like this team has found some chemistry and really starting to come together?

"We did some good things in the second half, but we still have a long ways to go as a team -- especially as a young team. We're still coming together and Coach Williams is still trying to get us to do things that we need to do to be successful all the time instead of just one half of the game."
