Arizona Head Coach Sean Miller

On the game...
"It was a very difficult game and physical. It's hard to win on the road. I know our conference is much improved and I could sense that before the season and you can feel it in a game like tonight. But we will take it and we have a lot to learn. We are always looking at things we can do better and there is quite a bit. I thought in the last four minutes prior to halftime and the continued good play throughout the second half was really the difference in the game. Kevin Parrom got the flagrant foul, the game went to a tie, and it seemed like things were shading towards them but we really finished the half good."

On the play of Grant Jerrett...
"I thought this was Grant's best game in Arizona. He got six blocks in a game, and they weren't easy blocks, they were big play blocks. He has that length and it seems like everytime we go through a new experience there's one of those freshmen who seems to improve. That's one of the exciting things about our team, we have a number of first year players in key roles and hopefully they can continue to develop. Brandon and Grant were much better tonight than they were against Oregon. Some of that has to do with Oregon, but they were better tonight, they were ready, they were physical and they helped us win."

On the play of the freshmen...
"They aren't going to come in and be the 3rd pick in the NBA draft in 5 months. That's fantasyland for 99% of athletes. But what they are, are really good players, great kids and I believe in one day, no question about it, they can head in that direction. But it's a process and it's a process they are more than happy to go through. They work hard everyday and as you can see tonight, they are immensely talented. As you grade our freshmen and look at them, they are going to continue to develop and become really good and I was happy with how they played tonight."

On the size advantage...
"We were much bigger around the rim with Grant (Jerrett) and six blocks and Kaleb (Tarczewski) with about five defensive rebounds. There were a number of situations where the length of our team helped us closer to the basket."
