Washington State Quotes:

WSU Head Coach Tony Bennett

On Derrick Low getting his 1,000th career points...
"That was great for him. He came in and has meant a lot to this program and will continue to mean a lot."

"In the second half against UCLA, he (Low) established the right mind-set. He came out aggressive, we practiced that way all week and he played that way today."

On outrebounding the Beavers...
"We wanted the ball...we were in more of a mind-set to finish the play defensively."

On the game...
"We're good when we can have a balanced attack. When we take advantage of Baynes and Robbie (Cowgill) down there, we succeed...when Aron gets down low, he's a lot to handle."

"Anytime you score it helps your confidence, but whether you make it or not, we want to stay aggressive."

Derrick Low

On playing at home...
"It feels good to come back home and play. It feels good to not worry about other crowds and have people cheering for you the whole time."

On scoring 1,000 career points...
"I didn't actually realize it. It's a great accomplishment. I know the last person to do it was Thomas Kelati, when he reached that 1,000-point mark I thought it was really great. To have it happen to me, it's a great feeling. I have to thank my teammates for giving me the ball."

Taylor Rochestie

On returning home...
"We know how tough it is to play on the road. On the flipside of that, to be able to play at home and have the fans for us and not travel, not be on a plane, is good for us. It's important for us to protect our home court."

On the offense...
"They did a good job of pressuring up. We spaced the floor really well, just to be able to go out there and execute our offense felt good."

On Oregon...
"We want to beat them pretty badly. We want to protect our home court against a team that's given us a lot of trouble in the past."

Daven Harmeling

On returning home...
"Being able to stay at home feels good. Just driving to the arena and seeing the students lined up felt good. I think we had more energy tonight."
