Opening Statement:

"I was really proud of our guys effort. This was a big test for us coming into this environment. We had experienced one road game and a couple of home games, but a chance to play against a very good and talented team, I was just really proud of our effort and for stemming the tide in a couple of different moments of the game. This was a big win for us and this program. I am really happy for our guys in the locker room because it meant a whole lot to them."

On responding every time Ohio State tied it:

"We have a group of guys that have a lot of confidence and aggressive mentalities. They love competition and are not afraid of big moments. We saw that tonight. We have a young team, two guys from last year's roster that played an awful lot and then a lot of guys who are really elevating into new roles. I was curious myself how we would handle some of the adversity that we were going to see. I am very proud of them for how they performed under that type of pressure because there were moments where it could have tilted the other way."

On limiting OSU's scoring off of turnovers:

"I thought our guys did a good job of getting back. As soon as that turnover occurred, we really tried to fly down the floor. It is something we talk about all the time in practice about setting our defense and trying to play with five guys on defense. We tried to press earlier and they did a really good job of breaking that and causing us to foul. We had to change our scheme there, but I thought for the most part we played a lot of defense with five guys and that is always the goal."

On setting the tone with a 7-0 run:

"It is true for all of our games. We want to start well, have a couple of actions that we worked on and go to and try to see how the opponent may guard us. Again, I am just really happy and proud of the guys for how they executed early. They came in with an attacking, confident mentality that we were here to play. That is always our mantra. We always want to be very competitive in every situation."
