WSU Head Coach Tony Bennett

On WSU's defense...
"We will win this game without a doubt with our are going to have to make stops and make it harder for them"

On Kyle Weaver's defense on James Harden...
"Kyle did a really nice job on James Harden"

"We tried to pinch the gaps and call it wall ball...Kyle did a good job on him...I thought it got better as the game went on"

On Aron Baynes' half-court steal and dunk... "I just have visions of picking the high post and rumbling down the court for a dunk. That was a big play because it was a two point game...he's surprisingly athletic that way.

On rebounding...
"It doesn't bother me when guards are getting the rebounds, the guards have to get involved and that's important especially in our defense"

WSU Guard Kyle Weaver

On playing defense on James Harden...
"They were great looks. I got lucky. At the same time I kind of encouraged it, I wanted him to shoot a couple of jumpers, I didn't want him to get aggressive. I think we did a great job as a team."

On Saturday's game...
"We're ready...that's one good thing about the conference, you get everybody twice. I think we learned a lot from the first game."

WSU Forward Robbie Cowgill

On Saturday's game...
"I'm excited too. I think if our defense is right then we're going to have a chance to be in the game with them."

WSU Center Aron Baynes

On Saturday's game...
"It should be a good game for us. We've got a few things to go back and work on, but we don't want to get swept by any team in the Pac-10. We're going to try and come out with some aggression."
