On how they played overall…

“I think we played OK. We let them back in it a little bit at the end. We’ve got to cancel that out to be where we need to be, but I think we played OK. We played well defensively in the second half to really stretch the lead out.”

On how comfortable they feel in zone…

“I think we’re comfortable, we do it every day in practice for a good amount of time. And with our legs and our athleticism, that it is just going to really help and we’re comfortable with that.”

On picking between zone or man to man…

“Man to man, because I think we’re all just really competitive. We like to take it to teams and we like to pick up full-court and stuff like that, and man to man allows us to do that.”

On what it is that makes them switch over with defense taking foot off gas…

“I think it is because we are all so young. We think that once we get ahead we can take our foot off the gas and take it a little easy, but Division I basketball at this high level, you can’t do that and teams will get back in it. And in some games, teams can win, and we’ve got to cancel that out.”
