Arizona Head Coach Lute Olson Postgame Quotes

 

“After the first five to six minutes we moved the ball, created better shots and knocked shots down.”

 

“We had six turnovers in the first six minutes then we played the way we should play.”

 

“In the second half we played really, really well, until all the reserves came in.”

 

“It was great to see Marcus (Williams) have the kind of game he had -- in that he shot the ball real well.”

 

“Other than ?'Staf (Mustafa Shakur), the rest of the guys got quite a bit of rest. You can see why we had to keep ?'Staf in the game, without ?'Staf the game was changed.”

 

“(Shakur and Radenovic) have been around.  They are seniors, they know what’s ahead and they also know you can’t waste minutes.”

 

“I thought the first five or six minutes we didn’t play the way we have been playing.  We forced drives; we took quick shots. I think the last 14 minutes of the first half we played Arizona basketball the way you wanna play it, and for about 14 minutes in the second half we did.”

 

“(The reserves) get to watch the horror show (tape of final six minutes of the game) by themselves with one coach to see if they could stomach it like we couldn’t on the bench.”

 

“The horror show will just be open to the main actors.”

 

Jordan Hill needs to work on his dunks.”

 

“I tried to keep Jawann’s (McClellan) minutes limited to get more out of him on Saturday.”

 

“It’s obvious Daniel Dillon and Bret (Brielmaier) are in the top seven and Jordan Hill is making a push for the top eight.”

 

Arizona Player Quotes

 

Senior Guard Mustafa Shakur

 

“We have guys who can make good plays, and when everybody is sharing the ball everybody is happy.”

 

“Of course, we’re going to prepare for how [Stanford] play, but we’re going to stick to what we do best.”

 

Freshman Forward Chase Budinger

 

“Once we started hitting a couple threes, everyone started to get into a rhythm.  [Making three-pointers] is something that our team can do and it sparks runs for us.”

 

Sophomore Forward Marcus Williams

 

“Everyone shot the ball well, and [Mustafa Shakur] almost got a triple-double.  He played great.”

 

“We have a team with a combination of experience and talent.  That makes it hard for teams to make runs against us.”

 

“We’ve played a tough schedule and taken care of business.  Now we have to continue that into conference play.”

 

“Whenever we go out others are going to go hard against us.  We have to come prepared to play next time out [against Stanford.]”

 

Junior Guard Jawann McClellan

 

“It seems like everybody was equal in scoring.  That’s how it always is with us.”

 

“We just have to put in a better effort at the end.  [It’s not the bench’s fault]; this is a team game.”
