VIDEO: Players after Win

Jan. 8 -- Kevon Looney, Tony Parker, and Bryce Alford talk after the 86-81 win over Stanford...

Kevon Looney, Tony Parker, and Bryce Alford:

Bryce Alford:
On feeding the post:
They got together early and started playing together well early. They did a good job playing and getting buckets, as well as being garbage men and cleaning up misses. We knew if we missed a shot they’d get the rebound. They did great job.

On his three-pointer and foul at the end of OT:
When they were looking over the call, we were just praying we had a shot. The three-pointer is a play we run often. I had space, and I was confident I could make it if I got the shot. On the foul, I was backpedaling, but we caught a break with a missed free throw, and my boys did great in the next overtime.

On what making his first shot did for his confidence
It was definitely good to hit my first shot. They say when you hit your first shot, it’s going to be a good shooting night. I didn’t shoot particularly well, but I made some shots, and it’s really good to be home and get a big-time win in Pauley.

Tony Parker:
On staying out of foul trouble:
It was real important this game to stay in the game. I knew we really had to guard well. Thomas (Welsh) was struggling today, and I knew I needed to pick him up.

On stopping the team’s losing streak:
It was big time. We knew we had to get a win, and we needed to do anything we could to do it. The fans and the student section were great. They gave us a lot of energy and kept us in the game. That was big for us - our fans were pushing us when we were really tired.

On Gyorgy Goloman’s play:
It was big what GG did, coming in and giving us big-time minutes. He played a great game for a freshman. A great game.

Kevon Looney:
On his play during the team’s scoring run while down 14:
I was just playing my game and had to pick up my energy. This was a must-win game. We knew we couldn’t lose. No one wanted to lose. So we picked up another gear and kept going.
