WSU guard Abe Lodwick
On the past week...
"There was a lot of guessing. There was a lot of rumors going on outside of the team. Guys weren't really sure what to think, but everyone just wanted to wait and see who the coach was. I think now that we have him here, there is kind of a sense of calm here and guys can focus a little bit more on what we need to do, and that's get ready for next season."

On Coach Bone's coaching style...
"I know for me, and Klay (Thompson), that's exciting for guys like us. Klay's a great shooter, obviously, and I know he'll thrive in that environment."

WSU guard Mike Harthun
On the past week...
"It's been a little hectic. Our team stuck together and kind of talked through the whole process. We've been there for one another through everything, kind of just talking it out. Klay (Thompson) is my roommate, we've been talking about it every night before we go to sleep for about two hours. It's been a little crazy, and it's just nice to get a coach, and we know he's a great guy and going to be a great coach for us."

On the decision to hire Ken Bone...
"I definitely (like the hire). I've talked to Coach Bone on the phone before while he was at Portland State. I'm definitely excited to get going with him. He seemed like a really good guy when we met with him this morning. I like his style of play. They shot nine more threes than we did last year, so that's kind of my style of play a little bit more up and down."

On the team sticking together...
"Everybody seems confident that they want to be here. That's what everybody wants to do, and I think everything will settle down a little, everybody will get comfortable with the coach and things will fall into place."

WSU forward DeAngelo Casto
On Ken Bone's coaching style...
"I heard that he was a great player's coach, and he listens to players and he wants to do what the players want to do."

On the search being over...
"It's real nice to have a coach in office and just telling us where he wants us to go and what we're working toward."
