VIDEO: Dejounte Murray Tuesday Briefing - Colorado

Washington guard Dejounte Murray spoke to the media Tuesday about getting a road split in the desert, as well as what he expects from Colorado when the Buffaloes come to Alaska Airlines Arena Wednesday night at 7 pm.

On the road experience and overcoming the loss to Arizona: It was a lessoned learn, especially for a young team like us. It was better to lose one than both. It cheered us up after that though loss to Arizona.

On the blowout loss to Arizona: That was crazy. We couldn’t make anything. The first half we played well with them. It was loud in their. There fans are loyal. In that second half, they outscored us like 55-26. We got out rebounded. They got into their offense and ran whatever they wanted. We couldn’t make shots. But we moved on and beat ASU. Now we’re ready for the next game.
On David Crisp keeping things light: I can say him and Malik Dime that if you’re down they’ll cheer you up. Malik will crack some jokes. David will dance or whatever to make you happy. He’s a fun person to be around.
On David Crisp: Yeah, that’s just what he does. He always has confidence. He can get down on himself but he’s really quick to get his confidence back.
On David Crisp’s turnaround baseline three: The dude can do a lot. He’s a really good player. The baseline runner, turnaround three, I’ve seen those go in a lot. Overtime he shoots the ball I feel like it’s going in.
On working hard on his jumper: Yeah. Hard work always pays off. I never get down on myself. Coach always says if you can’t score do something else to help your team win. Everything is falling into place.
On Dominic GreenI’m proud of him. He doesn’t get to play a lot but he’s always positive. He’s always one of the first in the gym and one of the last to leave. He’s still learning a lot. But he showed what he can do against Arizona State and stepped up big.
On if he saw Dominic Green before college: I knew some of his game because I saw him play in Las Vegas. He played with David, so I got to watch them a lot. He was at Tony Wroten’s camp. Since then I’ve been seeing him play and stuff.
On Colorado: I try not to compare teams, but I think they’re a good team overall. They have a good front court. We need to go out and play Husky Basketball.
On Andrew Andrews' performance against ASU: It shows how much of a leader he is. He’s a confident dude. He wants to win bad. I’m not surprised by what he’s doing. He’s showing everyone that he can pass the ball too. He’s proving he can. He wanted to play point guard this year and he’s proving he can rebound, pass, play defense, and make his team better.
On the chemistry: It’s improved a lot. This summer and early in practice we would scrimmage against each other. Now we practice and play together. Our chemistry is clicking and it’s real exciting.
On playing at home after a couple weeks on the road: Just another game. It’s great to be home for PAC-12 play and we’re excited to play in front of our fans and hopefully get a win.
