“Going into every game we feel like we can win every game, no matter what the situation is.”

“Today we had a lot of confidence.  Being down 18 and coming back, that will boost our confidence even more.”

“I just wanted to get in the lane. I know once I could get in the lane I could finish both ways.”

“It definitely motivates me. Coach Keatts challenged me to come out here and step up. He’s been telling me that since the beginning of the year.”

“We fell a little short [last game against Virginia].”

“Tons of confidence [taking second-half shots]. I feel like I can’t really miss when I’m in the motion and feeling myself.”

“We beat them on a buzzer beater. We wanted to stay on top the whole game but came out flat and they went up 18. Then we just rallied back.”

“When we took the lead I knew that we had them, when we were up one point.”
