On how much more confident he is after this past summer…

“Definitely confidence played a role in this game. The shots were there today and I was just ready for them to start falling.”

On his scoring spurt and if that was to show coach he can play more minutes…

“I was really just trying to bring some energy to the team today. I thought we were lacking that for a little bit. I just needed to pick the team up. I was just trying to focus on winning out there right now. I’m not trying to show coach or anything like that, we do that in practice.”

On if rebounding was the major focus this week…

“We got to practice and Cal put the rims up so we can’t make a shot. We just ran 17 and started playing five minutes straight. You get points off of rebounds. Offensive rebounds two points, and we just played and losers run. That’s what we were doing at practice. Came out here and rebounding was definitely a focus for the game.”

On Nick Richards how he’s seen him in the gym working on his shot…

“Nick Richards is in there before the games, early. He’s in there before practice working with KP (Kenny Payne), he goes back there at night. Those are the type of shots he’s been working on. He made a couple shots today, and KP says ‘Nick made a couple shots, go back to him.’ I think that post presence right there is going to be really big for us as the season goes on.”
