On what changes in a true road game …

“Definitely just the fans and stuff. All these younger guys are going to have to learn that there’s going to be some crazy fans in there that’s going to be yelling at you. You’re going to have to block it all out and play the game.”

On whether it’s worthwhile to tell freshmen about playing on the road or they just have to experience it …

“It’s a bit of both. You talk about it a little bit just to be aware of, to expect coming into a road game and stuff like that. It’s a little bit of both. It’s just experience and kind of learning.”

On his progression …

“Definitely I didn’t play very well in my eyes. I want to play better and I need to be more physical and dominant. I had some opportunities out there and I didn’t really take them as well as I wanted to. I still have a lot of room to improve, so definitely just keep improving.”

On what he says to Nick Richards as he struggles …

“Just keep confident. Just keep working and let the game come to you. Don’t drop your head. Just keep fighting and it’ll happen. So he’ll be fine.”

On how much Richards has improved …

“Definitely. His hook shot’s come along well with KP (Kenny Payne). He’s been working out a lot. His touch has gotten a lot better and everything. His all-around game, just the feel for it and everything. So he’s definitely growing as a player and getting a lot better.”

On what the Georgia showed them about what to expect in league play …

“Definitely Georgia was a really physical team. We didn’t really come out defensively match them really well. We were watching film just now and it just showed a lot that they were out-beasting us and we weren’t being as strong as we probably should have. Definitely just coming in more physical and ready to fight and communicate more. That’s a big key as well.”

On whether there are times when he plays that he has to calm himself down …

“Yeah, definitely. If you’re sitting on the bench a little bit and he throws you in, you’re like, ‘Alrght, it’s time to get it.’ You’re not even warm or anything. You’ve been sitting on the bench, but you gotta go out there and fight. That’s my mentality. You just gotta fight for everything and just do it that way.”

On multiple people stepping up, the latest being Shai Gilgeous-Alexander …

“Definitely. Shai’s been playing really well, just getting to the basket, doing what we need him to do, playing physical and just using that length he has to get steals and do everything. He’s been playing a lot better for us and we’re just trying to build on that and trying to get better together with him. Definitely just keep pushing ourselves.”

On dropping in the polls after two wins …

“It’s definitely crazy. There’s not really any words for it. We just have to go out there and prove ourselves. There’s nothing you can say to fix that. It’s just our luck.”

On what they have to do to impress people …

“I would say blow people out by 50 [laughter]. That’s kind of what we have to do here, but nah, keep playing our game and just keep winning. That’s what we gotta do.”
