Game Quotes

Xavier Players

Jason Love

“I just wanted to come out, and my teammates wanted to come out, and shake off that Butler game and start the New Year right.”

Brad Redford

“Early on, I struggled the first three games. If I’m open, coach [Sean Miller] wants me to shoot. I don’t know where I am sometimes [when I shoot}.”

Jamel McLean

“The great coaching staff that we have, they lit some fires [after the Butler game]. I felt like I had to hold my own tonight. Working hard pays off. I felt that I was more confident than I have been.”

Xavier Head Coach Sean Miller

“It’s a great feeling to get back on a winning track. I thought our team bounced back way before the game tonight, when we came back from Christmas. Terrell Holloway, five assists and one turnover. Dante Jackson, not taking so many shots, rebounding, and playing great defense. Jason Love, playing aggressively on offense. Jamel McLean, 11 rebounds in 16 minutes with that energy off the bench.”

“Terrell [Holloway] is the one true point guard in our system. It was great to see Terrell get five assists. To get five assists you have to pass. It looks to me like he was thinking pass.”



“Brad [Redford] just keeps trucking. He just keeps working. He’s a great role model for young kids and players. He’s a great weapon for us to have. Make no mistake, he’s as good a shooter as there is. I can’t say enough about the type of kid he is and how hard he works.”
