Bobby Frasor -- AUDIO (1:20)
What did you learn from the first game that helped you tonight?
“We just had to contain their guards. In the first half, we didn’t do that. We were shooting good, but we weren’t playing that great of defense and that’s why they stuck in the game.”
On the importance of the quick start
“It was big. We knew they were going to come out in zone. We got the ball inside and got some buckets. Reyshawn [Terry] was hitting some threes and everybody was feeling it. It got them out of their zone and then we got Tyler [Hansbrough] the ball.”
On this win and UNC’s positioning in the conference
“I feel every game is important. If you lose a game, you can drop two or three spots in the standings. You have to take one game at a time, but it’s good to get one on the road.”
Reyshawn Terry -- AUDIO (2:33)
What did you learn from the first meeting that helped you tonight?
“We knew we had to play better defense and control their offense. We needed to make our shots and everything seemed to work out today. It started on the defensive end, but we had to knock down shots.”
On what is going better now for you as opposed to earlier in the year
“I’m just playing harder; that’s all it is. I’m just stepping up.”
On the importance of the fast start
“That was definitely a factor, jumping on them early, getting defensive stops and taking care of the ball on offense.”
Marcus Ginyard -- AUDIO (3:19)
On your play down the stretch
“Basically I wasn’t as effective in the first half – just another body out there. We started getting on a little run in the second half, and I just had to be more aggressive and contribute to the team. They were really focusing on Tyler [Hansbrough] – Tyler was doing a good job getting strong in there and making plays. And that opened up the floor, and they weren’t able to pay as much attention to other players. Reyshawn [Terry] gets off and there were some rebounds I saw that I could get.”
What was different this time around containing their guards?
“That was definitely a key focus in this game – knowing they had gotten the best of us at our place. We really focused on coming out and containing the basketball, knowing that they were going to make there shots and make their runs. We just had to play poised on offense, limit them to one shot and play good defense.”
Tyler Hansbrough -- AUDIO (2:32)
On the overall physicality of this game
“I don’t know if it was [the most physical game I’ve been involved in this year], but it was physical.”
On the scuffle with Miami’s Guillermo Diaz in the tunnel going into halftime
“I don’t know what happened; I went in there late. There was a little talking and I just wanted to get my teammates back into the locker room.”
On the referee stepping in between you and Anthony King
“I think the ref was making sure we were going at it other than in a basketball way. It was just a physical game. He took care of everything.”
Especially as a freshman, what enables you to keep your composure in a situation like that?
“I have no idea. It’s just the game itself. I don’t want to lose myself and get taken out of the game.”
