#2, Jarred Vanderbilt, Fr., F

On how many minutes he could go right now …

“It all depends on how the game’s flowing, how I’m feeling at that time. It’s hard to tell you right now, but when adrenaline’s running you never know.”

On the last few days of practice after a poor start vs. Vandy …

“Mainly just not taking any opponent lightly. We came off of a big win. Guys were pretty hyped about that win because they knew it was a big game. Basically just treat every game like that, like it’s a big game, like it might be our last game of the season. The main thing was just that that’s our approach from now on.”

On what he’s doing to get more comfortable on offense …

“Just going hard. Just going hard in practice. Basically I think the only thing is just time. Just me getting my rhythm back. After a couple games, I feel like the shots will eventually fall. But for now I’m just trying to do some other things besides scoring because I feel like if you play hard good things will happen.”

On whether he’s shooting more in practice to get his rhythm back …

“Absolutely. Just trying to catch the speed of the game. When to slow down, when to speed up, stuff like that. Just trying to catch the flow of the game.”

On whether he’s been through anything like this before …

“Everybody has their struggles. I’ve had a few struggles. Maybe not to this certain extent, but just another stone of adversity. I feel like with me playing hard, that’ll just get me through it. Just play hard and, like I said, good things will happen when you play hard.”

On why they let up at times …

“Right now, I think—honestly, I don’t know. But I do sense when we are down, guys start to rally together and we come together and we know that’s when we really start to fight. But I feel like once we start to do that for a whole game, 40 minutes, I feel like it’ll be scary.”

On how he’s played since he returned …

“I think I’ve played good. A lot of people want to look at the offense, but I can really care less about the offense right now. I’m just trying to do everything else I can to help my team win and just to be successful, because like I said, baskets will come. Just try to bring a spark off the bench and be an energy guy.”
