  Interim Head Coach Jerome Tang

On shooting 50 percent...
"We prayed a lot, we wanted to make shots, our guys were focused from the start of the game, they were focused since yesterday at shoot around, this was a business trip we understood how hard it is to get a road win in the Big 12 and when you have a leader like Pierre Jackson and talent like Isaiah Austin and he didn't let the first half foul trouble bother him, he stayed locked in and it was a lot of fun."

On the transition game...
"We wanted to push it and try and score early if we could then we wanted to be real patient and play defense and I thought we did a really good job of that."

On trying to get off to a good start on the road...
"It was huge, you give a team confidence and they feel like they can play with you so our goal was to silence the crowd and take away confidence and see what they were made of."

 Senior Guard Pierre Jackson

On the offense...
"We were all focused and we were all locked in and that goes to the coaching staff and we executed well and put a couple of new sets in and like I said we executed well and made easy buckets."

On his three-point shooting...
"I shot a lot of shots earlier today, I like the ball and the feel of the gym and it felt good every time I shot the ball."

 Freshman Center Isaiah Austin

On his high contribution to the team this season...
"I came in knowing we already had scorers like Pierre Jackson and Brady Heslip that would put up buckets for us, but I've been taking my role as a scorer for us too."

On the key to being a productive first-year player...
"You just have to play hard and stay confident, a lot of guys are a lot stronger than us because they are three or four year players, whereas, we it's our first year and you just have to try and out hustle them."
