I felt if we came out and did well on defense, we could take the crowd out of it. That was a big emphasis.

Brandan [Wright] does a lot of things. So it's hard to crowd around me in the lane when you have (him).

It's not my mindset to go out there and score 40. As long as we get a win, I'm happy.

I took a little fall in practice. I landed on my back, and I didn't know if I was going to be able to go for the game. Our strength coach and our trainer helped me loosen up. It bothered me at times (tonight), but with time it will heal.

It was real important to come in here after the loss. We came out here and played well, played 100 percent and got the job done.

It might be a grind out game. You have to take care of the ball and do the things you need to do and you do in practice. To keep the crowd quiet was a great advantage.

We have a lot of guys with a lot of experience and a lot of guys that have been in big situations. We took (the Virginia Tech loss) and moved on.

The intensity level (on the road in the ACC) is much more higher. On the road you've got to get up early if you want to be in the game.

(The VT game) helped a lot with the pressure and getting out early. When you're on the road, you don't want to be struggling and trying to come back.

The conference guards are much better than the non-conference guards.
