Doubts about coming back?
We had some big plays. Brian hit a big three, Marcus hit one, we all did. They cut that lead down and won that game, that was really big for us.
The Balanced Scoring Output
We don't have one player, we have five players that are very capable offensively. That showed tonight. There were a lot of players that had seven points or above and that just speaks volumes of our team, how balance we are and how difficult it is to defend is.
Did you feel you guys had the pieces to be successful?
Each person on the team had a feeling that we were capable of becoming a very good team. We knew we had a lot of work to do and we are working on still getting better. That first practice, we saw that we had the parts to be a great team and through hard work and motivation, we could do some special things and Coach Ryan gets a lot of credit getting us where we are right now.
How does Trevon going down change your approach?
We don't try to change anything up at all. We are expecting to have a good player out there tomorrow. If he's not there, we'll still play the same way. We all have a lot of guys on our team that are very capable of a balance attack on offense. Whatever happens, we'll be ready to go.
What does it say about this team to be able to preserve through a double-digit deficit?
It speaks volumes of our team of how focused and determines we are. We all buy into the same thing and the same time, which makes us a special team.
On stopping Lucas on the second-to-last play.
I was just trying to force him to where other people were. He was trying to drive down the lane line and he got down the left-hand lane line a little bit and I tried to cut him off. He was trying to finish with his right hand a lot and I was trying to take that away.
Missing the two free throws at the end
I don't know. That was pretty ugly. You got to keep your mind in the game and get back on defense on the other side. The pressure was still there. It was just another shot.
