On the team's confidence after losing in the Atlantic 10 Tournament
"We have a lot of confidence. We're a team that's been working for this all year and now we're just ready to get out there and play. You can't worry about the last game because we have another opponent tomorrow."
On recent shooting slump
"I really don't worry about that too much. I've shot thousands of jumpers in my life and sometimes they go in and sometimes they don't. Every player goes through a shooting slump at some point, but the great thing about basketball is it's a team sport. There's always someone there to pick you up and help you through it."
On the team buying into Coach Miller's "team first" philosophy
"It wasn't hard at all. We are a team on a mission and coach has always told us team is first. That's the thing we've learned to do and it's brought us great success. It's really not hard to be unselfish because he recruits and brings in those types of players. Coach gives each guy a role and as you get older that role increases."
On the possibility of Georgia being tired after playing four games in three days
"You can't look at it like that because it's the NCAA Tournament and everyone has a ton of adrenaline. So I don't feel like that's going to be a big factor because they'll be ready for tomorrow."
On Georgia being an underdog from a bigger conference
"You have to put all 65 teams in the tournament on an equal playing field because everyone is a good team, otherwise they wouldn't be here. So we don't look at them as an underdog or as a team that we should beat."
