Quotes - Santa Clara at Portland
Dick Davey, on game: "We have been playing solid defense all year long and we did it again tonight. We keep ourselves in the game with defense and tonight we started hitting some shots and that got us out to a comfortable lead."
Davey, on team: "Tonight was a good game for us because a lot of different guys got to contribute. Brandon Rohe stepped up and made some big shots along with some other players. It was a good team win."
John Bryant, on his game: "I felt good out there so I just kept asking for the ball. The guys were giving it to me in good spots and I was able to make some shots. I was coming off a bad game against USF and I wanted to redeem myself."
Bryant, on big second half: "At halftime we talk about what we need to improve on and then we go out and fix it. We are a good enough team that we can adjust during the games and we were able to do that tonight."
Bryant, looking ahead to Gonzaga: "That is a huge game. We have to be ready right from the start and just compete with them. It is always a great atmosphere up there so it should be exciting."
Brandon Rohe, on contributions to win: "It was nice to see some extended minutes, but really I am just glad that we won. We executed well as a team and we rebounded a lot better in the second half."
Rohe, on stretch run: "We have six seniors on this team and this is Coach Davey's last season so we want to finish out strong. There are four games left and we want to win as many as we can and go out on a good note. It all starts Monday against Gonzaga."
