JAN. 27, 2009 - ATTENDANCE: 9,151


Baylor Head Coach Scott Drew

On the game:
"I was very proud of our team's effort. I felt that Texas made a couple more plays down the stretch and we missed a couple of free-throws and they made a couple of free-throws. I feel for our fans and I feel for our team because I know that they know the effort that everyone put out tonight."

Baylor Senior Guard Curtis Jerrells

On the game:
"We just didn't get stops at the right time. Each game in the Big 12 is going to be (physical) and we just need to get use to that."

Baylor Senior Forward Kevin Rogers

On the player matchups in the game:
"Like coach (Scott Drew) said, they made plays at the end. I think we matched up well with those guys. They really didn't beat us at a lot of points in the game; they just made the plays when they really needed them."


Texas Head Coach Rick Barnes

On the game:
"Coming in, we expected a hard fought game and I thought to start both teams were digging in, trying to play as hard as we could play both ways. I thought it was a great team win... As complete of win as we have had as a team. "

On Baylor's guards getting to the basket:
"It's either the rim or the three point line, it's one or the other. We wanted to make them try to score through our defense. They are a very hard team to defend. They are a very talented offensive team."

On Texas' win streak continuing versus Baylor:
"It means nothing. All it says is the programs are at different levels at different times. Scott Drew has done a good job to come in and build this thing where they have been ranked this year, so I don't think it means anything."

Texas Senior Guard A.J. Abrams

On guarding Baylor:
"We knew coming in what type of guards they had. They had some great guards out there. We know what they can do and I think we took it as a challenge tonight to see how we have progressed. And for the most part I think we did a good job."

Texas Junior Forward Damion James

On the importance of the win:
"It was a very big win. We knew we needed to come in and execute our game plan."
