"I thought he did fine. We did it tonight by committee with all of the big guys. Jeff can definitely help our ball club, he has got to make a decision that he wants to. He did fine, but he's got to bring it each and every day." - Bill Self

"He was a big body and a big presence down low. He got some rebounds, contested some shots, did a lot of things. When he is playing at the top of his game, especially defensively, that is when our team goes to another level. When he wants to, he can get any rebound he wants. When that is the case, it gets us out into transition a little more." - Aaron Miles

"Our game plan was to execute and try to contain Simien. With about 12 minutes left Giddens hit those big threes,. He is an outstanding freshman. Giddens and Langford are great players and they are a great team. I tip my hat to those guys." - Baylor coach Scott Drew

"We have to be (more aggressive). We didn't want to lose or let a team like that stick around and get confidence. You saw it in the first half their players were playing well, just sticking around. You kind of get the feeling the other team is starting to gain confidence. Midway through the second half, it seemed like they weren't going away." - Keith Langford
