NCAA Tournament Postgame Press Conference Quotes :: New Mexico State

CHRIS JANS: Heck of a college basketball game. That is what March Madness is all about. Really proud of our guys. I think a lot of teams would have packed and went home when it got bleak for a while. We kept trying to whittle it back and we gave ourselves a chance. We gave ourselves a chance, in the end to come from behind and get a win in the tournament. Unfortunately, we didn't.

Q. I want to know, did you know you were down by two and based on that, you know, talk about your decision to kick it out for the win, I guess?
AJ HARRIS: I seen the points, we were down two, so I felt like Terrell Brown was open, he got a great shot off, got fouled. I was trusting my teammate, my partner.

Q. Did you think you had an open shot? For us, it looked like you were open. I don't know.
AJ HARRIS: Yes, I did, I had the open shot. I felt like Terrell Brown was going to hit the three.  Continue Reading This Post >>

NCAA Tournament Press Conference Quotes :: Auburn

Q. Guys, first off, what do you think of New Mexico State, the depth, what you have seen in your scouting, in your preparation? Bryce?
BRYCE BROWN: They're a talented team, a very deep team like you said, they have pretty good guards, good bigs, and they have depth in all of those areas. So I think guarding their guards, keeping their guards in front of us, you know, helping our bigs out a little bit because it won't be a one-man team for them. Just helping out as much as we can because we're going to see these quick guards, fast guards, they are kind of undersized in their big, so their bigs aren't slow, undersized big as well.

Q. Jared?
JARED HARPER: They shoot the three-ball well, they are a similar team to us. They like to run, they like to press and force turnovers. So see how similar they are to us and know the things we have to do.  Continue Reading This Post >>
