(Recent scoring output?)

I don't know. I just wanted to be aggressive, I guess. Coach said we need a third scorer, so I guess that was my role to be that guy.

(Five fouls in 23 minutes?)

That was just the aggressiveness of the game. I mean, it was a couple, like, ticky-tacks, but that's part of the game. Just move on.

(Reflection of Oregon's athleticism?)

They're a good basketball team. They're the No. 1 team in the conference. They're real athletic, real bouncy. They can get off the floor (and) they can shoot it. They're a great team. Compliments to them.



(Oregon press affect the team?)

They were just trying to slow our break down, because they know we like to play fast. So they were just trying to slow us down and keep us in the half court game.

(Reason for the 30-second calls?)

Yeah, because we were holding the ball too long an didn't want to turn the ball over. So we've just got to learn how to play fast and play smart at the same time.

(Feel good to get back on the court?)

Yeah, it felt good even though we lost the game. But it still felt good to get back on the court.

(Surprising how long it took?)

Yeah, actually, because that was my first concussion so I didn't know how the process was going to go. When he told me I was going to be sitting out four games, it kind of hurt me really bad.

(What separates Oregon and Arizona from the rest of the conference?)

Probably Oregon's athleticism and the way they play very fast, just like us. That's probably what separates them.
