Head Coach Jim Christian
On the seniors’ leadership
“I’m proud of all our seniors. They’ve been this way since day one and really last spring. They’ve taken over the team and developed a culture they want. Good things can happen if everyone’s on the right page.”

On the team’s performance against UNI
“Everybody who stepped on the floor for us did some things they can improve on and did some things that helped us win the game. The game is played so fast that everybody has got to contribute if you want to have a good team.”

On the freshmen players
“It was a tough game for them so I just wanted them to learn. It was a game for our veteran players, but everybody on this team is going to have their moments. Everybody on the team is going to be valuable for us and those guys know it. They just have to keep getting better and keep being patient.”

Senior Guard Nick Kellogg
On his role as a team leader
“I think we have five ‘go-to’ guys. At any point in the time any of us can go. We have a lot of leverage so I don’t think there has to be one ‘go-to’ guy.”

On Ohio's difficult non-conference schedule
“We’re challenging ourselves with the schedule because we believe we have the potential. Our goal is to get better each and every day.”

Senior Guard/Forward Ricardo Johnson
On the atmosphere of the game
“We just want to play hard, aggressive and take what the defense gives us. Our preparation up to this point made us ready for this game. In practice, we talk about playing with energy and that’s what we did.”

Junior Forward Maurice Ndour
On his college debut
“It feels great. I wasn’t nervous at all. I was really excited for my first college basketball game and as I said I would’ve done anything for today.“
