How do you feel after playing? Was there any soreness?
I expected some, but surprisingly there isn’t. I did a full practice yesterday and didn’t feel anything. Ty [Lawson] was out most of practice, so I did more. It feels good today, so hopefully if I’m careful it will continue to heal.
How can you be careful and run up and down the court?
When I’m out there playing I’m not really being careful on it. Limiting the number of possessions I play is the only way I can be careful, I guess. If Coach puts me in for 40 minutes, I’m going to try and play 40 minutes.
On hitting his first two shots versus Penn -
Not only did it help our team, but it helped me ease back into it and made me feel like I was going to be OK. For me to knock down the first shot, that was kind of relaxing for me.
Is the injury something you can totally forget about when you’re out there? Do you worry about it?
In practice more than games. In game, Coach always tells us to lose ourselves in the game, and you kind of do with the crowd and all that. But in practice when we’re in dummy offense and things like that, I’m not going to cut hard off of my right foot. It’s going to be there at times, but in games I don’t think I’ll worry about it.
