Head Coach Dana Altman

Opening statement...

"We played really good, hitting all of the three pointers. I think we went 10-15 for three pointers in the first half. We just played really well. It was a good game for us. We played really well offensively and pretty well on defense."

On the halftime discussion...

"We talked about continuing to share the ball. We just needed to run the offense and not give up easy baskets."

On why the team was so successful tonight...

"We only had four turnovers at the half. The guys were really unselfish tonight and they were ready to go."

On the upcoming Pac-12 tournament...

"The tournament atmosphere is different. We have to prepare for it."

On the team's transformation over this season...

"I am really pleased. We struggled early and the guys just stayed with me. The guys that were here with us before this season trusted us and kept the new guys looking ahead. I am glad they stayed with us because I knew we could do it. We have made good progress and we have become a pretty good team."

On Tony Woods' shoulder injury...

"His shoulder was sore. We didn't want to take any chances tonight. He will be ready to go for the tournament."

On what Coach (Dana Altman) said at halftime...

On the season...

"It's been a great season. All the guys like each other on and off the court and it translates into wins. We have five seniors this year and we just have that sense of urgency to win and get to the postseason."

On ending his college career successfully...

"I'm most proud that it has all come full circle. It means a lot as a senior to leave this program on an upswing."

On Olu Ashaolu's dunk...

"If that's not number one on Sportscenter's Top 10 plays, I'm not watching it anymore."

On scoring 27 unanswered points in the first half...

"Our defense was amazing, we rebounded the ball really well tonight. We were good in transitions and finding the open player."
