Ole Miss Quotes

Head Coach Rod Barnes

On the game...
"It was scary. Give Coach Wooldridge, those kids and their staff a lot of credit. They really came out and did a great job. We just thank god we came out with a win."

On having a large lead and then losing it in the second half...
"We played well. We hit some shots. We did some good things. We got the ball inside. We lost it for a couple of reasons. First of all they turned up their intensity. Every game that we've watched them, they've gotten behind, and they always come back. So I told our guys that they were going to come back. It was a little bit too close for me but I knew they were going to make a run. They've got a really nice team. If they stay together and continue to work, they've got a chance to really be good this seaon."

Forward Derrick Allen

On his play in the first half...
"I like to pass the basketball. Coach just told me to be a little bit more aggressive on the offensive end and to stop being a little passive."

On practicing against former teammate Rahim Lockhart last season...
"He helped me a whole lot. Playing against Rahim, who is a great player, just got me ready for the SEC. I can play out on the floor a little bit better than Rahim could. I'm not as effective on the floor but I am better on the blocks."

K-State Quotes

Coach Woolridge On the last second foul...
"It's unfortunate. You know, he clearly fouled him. The kid maintained control of the ball. I know we will get that call on the road. That's what goes through my mind, and that's what goes through yours. It's unfortunate that it happened. I thought Larry got a good look at it, and it didn't go in, and the action happened so quick. You hear the whistle in the backcourt and you know some things shouldn't happen, but they did. And I told Travis, `you have got to get your head up.' He fought that game as hard as a guy can fight it, and he competed."
 

 

On the Wildcat's play tonight...
"I thought our team grew a little bit tonight, you hope that we did and there are signs that we did. We competed against a team that was road-tested, and not a young team, not a new team, but a veteran team who knows how to do this. We came back and battled, and at the end, had a shot to win this."

On Larry's last shot...
"We had a different plan, but coming out of the time out I told Larry that if there was no pressure on him, to bring it back up, flatten it out, and go get your shot. He played a great second half, and Larry's playing really confident and he had a smaller player on him, which is something that we look at when Larry gets into those situations. I think the tape will clearly point out that he had a good look at the basket, and that's what you want."

Senior guard Larry Reid

On the loss...
"That was a costly call at the end. He (Jason Harrison) stepped up and made both free throws. We put him on the line and he won the game for them. We played a pretty good game. I think we came together as a team this game. I think we showed a lot of signs of us being winners. We just have to keep playing."

On being down 17 points in the first half...
"We just couldn't find our rhythm. I think once we made a little comeback before we went into half time. I think we went into half time with a lot of confidence knowing that we could be in this game and we came out in the second half and put together a good one. We went down to the stretch and we put him on the line to win the game and they did."

Senior forward Travis Reynolds

On his assessment of K-State as a team...
"I think we're on the move up. That team played in the Sweet 16 last year and they just lost one player. They've been on the road and won. We battled them real well tonight. Some young guys stepped up, some new comers stepped up and played real well. I think as the season goes along we'll keep improving."

On Nick Williams and Travis Canby...
"Canby came in and made some big plays for us. He came in and gave us some hustle. He came in and gave us some beef against the big guy. I think (Derrick) Allen really hurt us the first half and Canby came in and played real well against him. Nick did a good job the first half. He handled the ball when Larry (Reid) went out of the game. He did a good job for us."

Freshman forward Travis Canby

On his playing time...
"It was great to get off the bench and get in there and mix it up. In my college history so far, being a freshman, this is the best game I've had. I give all the credit to my teammates though. They helped me out in every single way."

On the scuffle...
"We're a team, so if one person is in trouble we've all got his back. We're not going to come in here and get pushed around. We're going to fight to the end. I think you guys are going to see that as the season goes on."

On the team as a whole...
"I'm very encouraged. I think we're making a vast improvement each time we step onto the court. Practices are getting better, games are getting better and our fan support is incredible right now. I think with all those combinations combined, we're going to upset some teams in the Big 12."
