D.J. SHELTON

How was Senior Night?

~~I thought it was really good, it was great. I thank my teammates, all the fans that could make it to the game. The coaches . It was just a great experience.

What have you seen out of Que Johnson and Ike Iroegbu this season?

~~We’ve seen a lot of great energy. They gave us a good spark off the bench. Even when they started they played up to the level and I think they did a real good job their first year in the Pac-12.

What was working offensively?

~~I think we just, coach kept telling us to keep our composure, keep going at them, be patient time is on our hands. I think we did a real good job of that, running the sets they told us to run. They kept switching up man and zone and I think we did a really good job of that, just finding ways to score and get to the basket.

Did it help to know that you beat this team last season?

~~We kind of figured they were going to come in and underestimate us, come in and play cool. So we knew we just had to be more aggressive and have more energy than them.

WILL DIIORIO

How was Senior Night?

~~I’ll just echo what D.J. said. Fans, family, coaches, teammates. It was great to leave Beasley with a win, especially against UCLA.

Could you talk about that last play and the standing ovation?

~~It was great to score. DaVonte started dribbling and I just thought I’d sneak in behind the defense and get a quick bucket. The ovation was great, I was just happy that I was able to be here at WSU for my four years and complete it with a win.

QUE JOHNSON

Are you impressed with your team's offense despite a below average game from DaVonte Lacy?

~~Yeah, because DaVonte is a great scorer. We shared the ball basically. He wasn’t really making shots but we did a great job of making the extra pass for an open shot.

What does it mean to beat a team like that heading into the Pac-12 Tournament?

~~It means a lot. Like you said they’re second so that just means we can play with anybody, especially going into the tournament.

IKE IROEGBU

What was working on offense?

~~Just sharing the ball, if you have a teammate with a good shot but see a teammate with an even better shot just pass up your shot and give it to him. Coach Bone just told us to share the ball and play for each other and that’s what we did.

What did you talk about at halftime?

~~Just keep it up. We were up on Oregon the same way then they came back and they beat us so we just stuck together and said we can’t calm down, we’ve just got to keep going at them.
