VIDEO: Malik Dime Post-Game - Stanford

Dawgman.com's Kim Grinolds spoke with junior center Malik Dime after Washington defeated Stanford 91-68 Wednesday afternoon in the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament, held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Dime finished with 11 points and 10 rebounds. He also blocked three shots, tying him for the UW all-time mark at 85 for the season with Robert Upshaw, who blocked 85 last year.

On tying Robert Upshaw’s single season block record “I’m not really worried about that. I’m only trying to do the best I can to help my teammates on the defensive end. Most of the time, I’ll be in the right spot to get blocks.”

 

On his performance “I mean, my teammates trusted me and passed me the ball a lot of times. I did my best to make most of my free throws and I think that’s why the really added up. I think everybody did a great job coming from the jump. Everybody locked in playing great defense. I think everybody did a pretty good job.”

 

On trying to get the ball down low when Stanford’s bigs got in foul trouble “Our guards did a great job of attacking. We kind of say the guards need to attack the zone, so they did a great job attacking and getting into their bodies, which put them in foul trouble.”

 

On Oregon “There isn’t much to say about it. We just have to come out and show the same intensity we had today to beat them and cut off the second chance points.”

 

On his near breakaway dunk “Pretty much everybody on the bench was telling me some stuff. Dejounte Murray, Matisse Thybulle, Andrew (Andrews), all of them pretty much.”
