Arizona Player Quotes

 

Senior Guard Mustafa Shakur

 

“Next week, I expect a couple of tough games like we saw this weekend.  The only difference is that we won’ be at home.”

“As Coach O said, every game is going to get tougher and tougher as we go.”

 

Freshman Forward Chase Budinger

 

“It was a physical game down low.  I was just trying to get a body on the big guys, and they always had a shooter on the wing so it was tough juggling between those two.”

 

On his rebounding approach against taller players:

“I tried to put a body on them and get them off balance.  When the ball comes off [the rim], I just try to get to it quickly.”

 

“It was one of the most physical games I’ve ever played.  They put one guy on me and told him to be physical and push me.  I was face-guarded the whole game.”

 

Sophomore Forward Marcus Williams

 

On Washington’s Bank of America Arena:

“It’s always the craziest gym.  You can’t hear yourself talk in there.  Last year, our game there was one of the most memorable games I’ve ever played in.”

“My approach is to stay focused.  We just need to go out there, rebound and play defense well.  If we do that we’ll come up with the win.”
