What are your expectations for this team this season?
“We should be really good. We really should be, with all of (the players we have) returning and how far we went last year. We should have won the Duke game. Everybody knows that. We should have finished that game how we know we should have. But I think this year we should go really far. If we don't, I'll be disappointed.”
Is that game something you still think about and talk about?
“Of course. They bring it up almost every day, the coaches do.”
Is that a good motivation tool coming into the season?
“It is. I think that's why they tell us that. I think that's really what's pushing us hard this year is we can't let that stuff happen again. We wouldn't have been in that situation if we would have won the games where we were up double digits and lost (during Big 12 play). We wouldn't have had to play the No. 5 team in the country on their home court.”
