You can’t on drives think you’re going to get bailed out with fouls. You’re not.

On his team


We’re not there yet, but…My whole vision of this team is we’re going to get it.

You’ve got your chance and we come down and take two of the worst shots we’ve taken all year. But that’s what freshman do.
