On the team's 12-0 run in the second half: "We came out and really got aggressive defensively. It was a plus for us because we were able to pull away in the game. It was a positive. It's one of the things we always say, to improve on defense."
On the play of Wisconsin's guards: "Coach really emphasizes getting it in the post. He always says good things happen when you touch the post. Keaton (Nankivil) and I, on the inside, draw a lot of attention. So that leaves guys like J-Bo (Bohannon) and Trevon (Hughes) open on the outside. They did a great job of getting it to us. We were unselfish and tried to kick it out if we don't have any looks. You have a higher percentage kicking the ball outside from the inside. It's something that we stress."
On his defense against Green Bay's Troy Cotton: "As we knew, he was shooting the ball really well, especially from three. Chasing him around screens, we wanted to make him put it on the floor and shoot tough jump shots. But it wasn't any different than how we handle other shooters or anyone else on defense. We wanted him to shoot those tough two-point jump shots and it paid off in the end."
On his rebounding: "It definitely needs to be more consistent, but it's something the coaches told me to work on and today the ball just happened to fall into my hands. It doesn't matter who gets the boards as long as we get them. Today they just kept coming off toward my part of the floor and I just tried to get it."
On responding to not playing in the second half much in the last game: "I think for anybody that wants to play, something like that makes you want to work harder next time you're on the floor. But it wasn't one of those things where I was sitting there thinking about it all this game, it was just that I was always trying to go out and be productive whenever you're on the floor."
