Washington State Quotes:
WSU Head Coach Tony Bennett
On tonight's game:
"Our big guys, Robbie and Aron have really provided a huge spark for us the past three games. When you shoot that kind of percentage, if your defense is right, you shouldn't be struggling as much as we were."
"As far as offensive efficiency, we were very good. Our offense bailed us out tonight more than the defense did Wednesday night. I guess you take it anyway you can get it."
On the break between games:
"Eleven days is quite awhile, but we will enjoy that time to rest up. Our next game is in Seattle and there will be some excitement there."
On the inside game:
"Kyle will find you. Our guards really did a good job of penetrating and dishing that's how I got all my points tonight, just being right near the basket and laying it up."
"I think everyone's pretty frustrated with the way we played tonight. The guys seemed pretty tired, it was a lackluster performance. We're glad we got out of here with a win. It does feel good that we won, but not the way that we did it."
On his play tonight:
"The guys got me open, I just had to finish it. I haven't been finishing the last couple weeks, and I finally got to tonight."
On having his biggest game of the season:
"It's a good feeling being back on the court and producing. It was hard for me, I was struggling to start the season. It feels great to be back. I hope this is my starting point for a better time."
"Maybe a little bit of relief. The guys still feel like we could have played better. I think this game was a good test for us to look back and see where we're at."
