Head Coach Kerry Keating, on first game: "Tonight wasn't anything I was unaccustomed to because we played the exhibition game on Monday night here at home. So tonight didn't feel like the first game."
Keating, on shooting: "We took a lot of shots in practice this week because we need some players to step up and hit some shots from the wings. John (Bryant) is scoring a lot but he needs some help from our shooters. We did not shoot it well in the exhibition game on Monday, but we did a better job of that tonight."
Center John Bryant, on game: "We just wanted to come out and play hard and get a win. The exhibition game earlier this week did not go well so we wanted to come out and redeem ourselves a little bit for that."
Bryant, on scoring inside: "They did not have a lot of big guys, but they played a physical game so it was not easy down there. It was just a matter of getting position down there and then I could get some good looks."
