UCLA head coach Steve Alford
“I'm really proud of our guys. This was not an easy game. It was difficult for a number of reasons but mainly because they're a really good basketball team. Coach Bob [Williams] does a good job with them. They can score the ball and have a legit post player.

“We did a good job driving to the rim and taking care of the ball. We got good shots and gave our offense a chance to succeed. We were able to wear them down. We switched between man defense and zone defense and I think that helped wear them down. We are a young basketball team. We know that. As long as we see progress, we are going in the right direction. I think we saw that progress in the last 10 minutes of the game.

“We drove the ball hard and we're hard to guard in transition. We stretch the ball to the baseline. We have so many weapons and a lot of guys who can make shots and get to the free throw line.”

UCLA guard Jordan Adams
“They were shooting the ball exceptionally well. Sixty percent shooting made it really difficult for us. They were focused and hitting their shots. We wanted to double him [Alan Williams] every time he got the ball. We felt that that was what we wanted to do. We crowded him more in the second half. Tony [Parker] had a better half and he matched his [Williams’] intensity.

UCLA guard Kyle Anderson
“We had a big emphasis on stopping their big [Alan Williams]. But, they just made a lot of three-pointers. We have a great team bond. Everyone is very unselfish and Coach Alford’s offense is more spread out [than last year]. Being unselfish is very fun, and having two guys over 20 points is fun to see. Tony [Parker] did a better job of discouraging Williams in the second half. That was really a key for us, with him being a presence inside.

UCLA guard Zach LaVine
“I’m comfortable with my role. From the beginning, I like being the energy booster. We did our scout for tonight, and they had a big man [Williams] who had a game with 39 [points] and nine rebounds.

UC Santa Barbara head coach Bob Williams
“Shooting was not the issue of this game. The free-throw line and turnovers were the real difference in this game. UCLA did a nice job on [Michael] Bryson and Kyle [Boswell]. The only way we could play with them was by shooting the three or giving the ball to Alan [Williams] inside. We had to do both.”

UC Santa Barbara guard Kyle Boswell
“I wanted to get into a rhythm early and look for my shot. It opens things up for Al [Williams] down low. I had a fun time, but we just fell short at the end.”

UC Santa Barbara forward Alan Williams
“Even though we led during certain points of the game, there are no moral victories for this team. We have Cal on Friday, and we need to get back to the gym. I know that in the second half I have to deliver, and I missed a few cheapies, however I was able to knock down a couple of shots to help.”
