VIDEO: Powell on SFA Win

Norman Powell talks about winning two games in hometown San Diego and pulling off the acrobatic layup during the Stephen F. Austin win...

Norman Powell:

On getting through the first weekend:
It's really big. Coach was talking about it being our game, competing hard, this team was good. We're excited to get to Memphis and be one of 16 teams to get out there and show what we can do.

On his behind the back layup:
I kind of planned it and it was kind of on instinct. I used to do that when I was a little kid and in high school. When I saw the way he was playing me, it automatically came to me and I was able to play the finish. I heard everyone go 'oooooh' so it was a great feeling.

On playing Florida:
They're a great team, they've shown that. We're just ready to go out there and compete against them. It's going to be a great game, two great teams, it should be fun.

On their last five games:
One, we're playing together, two, we're playing defense. When it comes down to that, we're able to play well and have fun. We're able to get stops and get into our transition. Everyone had an assist. It comes along with this team, the chemistry is high.

On the assists:
One, you have to put it on Kyle, he's been a great point guard for us. Our offense is geared towards our athleticism. When you have someone who distributes like that, everyone is able to do what they do.

On ball security:
We've taken care of the ball pretty well this yea rand we knew they were going to pressure us and deny us, we knew it was about cutting and moving.
