Henry Sims on reaction to early foul trouble[/db]: "You know like last game, I got two quick ones, but I wasn't honestly too concerned. Like I said last game we have a group of guys that don't depend on me; you know they can handle themselves. So I wasn't too upset".
Clark on last shot, which he missed: "I felt like it had a shot - it was off".
Hollis Thompson n NC State's defense: "I think it was more or less what we expected; they kind of packed it in, tried to make it difficult for us to get in the lane".
