On the game overall...
"First of all, you always have to credit Nebraska. Doc (Sadler) always does a great job with them. They always compete, they always play hard, and their defense is always one of the tops in the conference. As much as we wanted to play a faster tempo, Doc did a good job in keeping it (slow). We had 55 points; I don't know if we shot that low all season from the field, so we played a good defense if we're doing that."
On if they got what they wanted on their last possession...
"Oh yeah, it worked out well in that last minute. I think we had a couple guys step up and make big plays and defensively we did a good job. And then free throws are always critical in close games and we did a good job from the line."
On if it's frustrating to play in a game like this...
"That's why our conference is the best conference in America, not only the records and what we have done, but the different styles of play to prepare you for when you get to postseason. Again Nebraska, they do a great job controlling tempo."
On what this win means...
"Any road win in the Big 12 is to be cherished. They are always hard fought. It can be by one point or 30 points, they're huge."
