DEC. 31, 2008 - ATTENDANCE: 5,092

Baylor Head Coach Scott Drew

On the game:
"As far as today goes I think that our first group out there did a great job and they really got us off to a great start and helped us set the tone. It is a great way to end 2008. Everybody played and everybody played hard. A lot of good things were accomplished and now we are fully focused and ready for (South Carolina) and then the Big 12."

On Kevin Rogers:
"Kevin did a very good job going 10-for-13 and he got us off to a good start but he did it with high percentage shots and a lot of work in the paint which is what we need."

On the offensive production:
"I think that every game that you go into you look at your advantages and disadvantages and inside, we did have an advantage. At the same time, if you help out on the guards hopefully we continue to get better so that our frontline can make them pay. That is what we were able to do tonight."

Baylor Senior Guard Henry Dugat

On the game:
"We knew what they were capable of and we knew the things that we had to work on as a team. Mostly we wanted to work on not starting slow like we had done a few games before. I think that showed tonight that it was one of our focuses."

Baylor Senior Forward Kevin Rogers

On the game:
"Every time that we step out onto the court we are ready to play. We came out with a different focus. With us having three games in five days we had to come out with a different level of focus and we are going to try and step it up from game to game."

Jackson State Head Coach Tevester Anderson

On Baylor:
"Coach Drew is an outstanding coach and I will tell you that he has an outstanding team too. This is a very fine team. We have played Texas A&M and Kansas and I think by far this is perhaps the best team that we have played all year. We have played at Arizona State and at LSU and this team can just shoot the ball so well. If you give them a little opening, they are going to make the shot and not many teams can say that. This is an outstanding offensive team and a good team period. This is an outstanding team and this is one of the best teams that I have seen in a while."
