On the second half burst:
Win or go home. We were tied at halftime. We had a little rest, and coach specifically said, this is their second, second half in two days and this is our first.
On avenging the loss from last year's title game:
They beat us here last year and I broke my foot, so when I got out on the court, it brought the memories back and I wanted to play so bad.
On how tough it was watching last year's game:
It was very hard. Me suffering the injury. I was trying to battle through that. As soon as I stepped on the court and saw Oregon, I was like 'I'm glad I'm playing this time."
On their energy level being different:
We trusted our offense more. Guys moving the ball around and spreading the ball around and guard every possession.
On if this was their best game:
Yeah, I think so. If we could play like this consistently, we could be pretty good.
On what the biggest difference is:
That's the million dollar question. We're trying to figure it out. We practice hard leading up to this tournament.
On erasing the Washington State loss:
As soon as we got back to L.A., we put it away. That really showed how much we dedicated ourselves to focusing on Oregon.
On his own improvements:
Moving without the ball. Last year I would be standing in the corner and moving without the ball. Without Shabazz, I have more focus and attention on me.
On if they feel dangerous now:
We think we can, but now we have to show it. That was on the board today, no more talking, now we have to show it.
