Head Coach Tony Bennett

On Senior Day...
"I'm kind of spent right now. What I kept telling those guys in the huddle was you're going to make this one of the greatest memories if you can get this one, the way it was playing out. In the locker room after, I told them they weren't going to forget this game. What a memory they created for everyone. It's a special group going out."

"After the game, I wanted them to take a minute and soak it in. When they came here, we got excited for 4,000 people and this is what has happened. And it's been done the right way. I told them I was proud of them, and I wanted them to thank the crowd and just be at center court and take it in because it's quite a story."

On beating the Huskies...
"I thought we went and won this game. I don't think Washington lost it. They got in foul trouble, but they're good, that's our league. It's so balanced and so tough. We finished in third and in a league like this as much as you want to win it, that's very solid. Now we have to keep trying to play the best ball we can going into the Pac-10 and NCAA tournaments."

"We made some big plays, but they certainly made plays too. It was the last one standing. Maybe we made one or two more big plays than they did, but it wasn't a matter of them not executing or hitting a big three. What a game; it was quite a rivalry and quite an ending."

On post-season play...
"The bottom line is that you're going to have to play good basketball home or away or you won't advance in the Pac-10 tournament and the NCAA tournament as well."

Senior Guard Kyle Weaver

On senior day...
"It was pretty special [senior ceremony]. Just being with these guys and going through what we've been through, to start a game like that was a very good feeling."

Senior Guard Derrick Low
"Being able to walk our parents out to center court was special. I was trying so hard to not show anything. I just kept smiling. It was an awesome experience. We only do that one time and I was glad to do that."


Head Coach Lorenzo Romar

On today's game...
"It was emotional for both sides, I felt our guys played well, but when you turn the ball over as much as we did, it's real hard to win, especially against these guys."

On WSU's senior day...
"When you're talking about a senior class that's the most celebrated in their history, not on incoming hype but overall productivity, there's a lot of emotion, and when you play double-overtime, that adds in more emotion."

Washington Guard Ryan Appleby

On the last shot...
"It felt good when it left my hand. It was a tough shot, Cowgill tipped it out and I had to shoot it on the run so I just put it up."
