Quotes - Santa Clara at Portland

Recap |  Final Stats

Mitch Henke, on final minutes of the game: "We had a few defensive letdowns and missed some easy opportunities on the offensive end. If that happens, the game is going to get away from you."

Henke, on his shooting night: "I know that I am not the first option with John (Bryant) inside so I just try to take what comes to me. When I see some openings, I have to take those shots. As a senior, I was just trying to step up tonight and make some plays."

Henke, on his four-point play: "That felt great when I completed it and I thought we had momentum on our side at that point. I thought we would keep the run going after that but we had some problems defensively."

Henke, looking ahead to Gonzaga: "It is one of the toughest and most fun places to play. We are definitely going to be fired up going in there. There is a great atmosphere in their gym and we need to come out hard from the start."
