Takeaways from the UA game down there - Played well first half, put ourselves in position, but second half unfolded.
How tough is it to deal with their size - Dealt with it fine in first half. Second half didn’t stay with it.
Learn more from what you did right or wrong in that game? - Probably from what we did wrong. What do we need to do to get back on track? We focus on that
On the crowd and being hyped - Whenever the building is electric we can make a run. We bring our energy but the crowd just adds to it. But a lot of that UA game was also guard penetration.
On the buzz for this game - Love it. Love everyone supporting us to see a good game.
On the 2004 game - Don’t know about it.
Waiting a long time to have a sellout game? - Hasn’t really hit home for me. Just ready to play another game.
On Trier - Before he got hurt he was their leading scorer. Catch and shoot, can isolate you. Have to be ready. Knowing he’s a capable and willing scorer.
Are you preparing for him? - We’re preparing for every situation. Especially being from Seattle have to expect he wants to play.
On scoring slumps and what you did to get out of them - Don’t worry about it. Scoring is just one part of the game. If you try to press it, you get in a bigger hole. It’ll come in time.
Is it a familiar feeling, so it will pass? - Coach talked about it, every time you go in a slump you really break out of it. That was the first time I thought about it. I know I’m capable.
Finding it easier to find your time to take over? - Definitely. Also know when someone has it going. For me being a scorer, I know how it looks. Swag is a little different. So I put them in a position to make plays.
Been a game this year where you and Baby Boy have that look? - sHaven’t yet, but the day we do it’ll be scary. Then we’ve got the guys down low and shooters around us it will be scary.
On staying in games - Hear it a lot. If can’t get the ball for sure, don’t get it. Foul is a foul, not always agree with it. I can admit it after, but during game fight it. It helps me and the team to go out when I foul. I want to play. It keeps the game going and I can come back in and help.
Dealing with their size - Played against a lot of good bigs. They are strong and physical. We don’t back down from anyone. When we get fouls we’re not as aggressive. Just have to play a full game of defense and play the game we want to play.
