Mt. Olive Recap: Player Quotes

Postgame comments from L.D. Williams and Tony Woods following the Deacs win over Mt. Olive.

L.D. Williams
On the difference between the team last year and this year
"Last year a lot of people said we were dwelling on Coach Prosser's death. This year it is still in the back of our heads but we have a task at hand. We want to do big things this season and we have the guys that can do it. We have a lot of different guys that can score in double figures and get rebounds. We wanted to make a statement tonight not only to the Wake family that we have a good team but to the world that we are taking no prisoners."

On the team's depth:
"This team is real special because we have so many guys who can play different positions. We have a lot of guys that can do a lot of different things for us. In the long run it is going to help us out."

22 points on 10 of 14 shooting isn't bad is it:
"Coach has been getting on me a bit about attacking the rim and shooting too many jumpers. I just really tried to attack the basket and get out on the break and finish. Jeff found me a few times with great outlet passes."

Tony Woods
On his 15 point 8 rebound performance:
"It wasn't bad at all. Not to discredit Mt. Olive, but the competition only gets better so I am not really too excited about [tonight's performance.]"

On his comfort level on the court:
"I feel real comfortable. I feel like I am just fitting in. It's a great feeling."

Is Chas teaching some of his moves inside?
Chas is pretty nifty and he is showing me the ropes. I am still kind of a dumb freshman but Chas is helping me out."

Were you nervous?
"I was more hyped than anything. I hardly ever get nervous but I was hyped when I got out there and saw the crowd and the Deac on the bike. It was like man it has started."
