UCLA head coach Steve Alford
“Getting this big of a win on the road, that’s a big positive. I thought we played really well. Jordan [Adams] is really in a groove, and I think, I hope it is because we are really deep in our ability to score baskets. I think what Jordan is doing, he is starting to get rhythm. Zach [LaVine] was in rhythm early. I thought he showed some signs of getting back to rhythm after a couple sub-par games from him. Having a lot of scoring, you can afford having maybe one guy not having a good scoring night since we have so many guys who can pick up the slack. Jordan is in a groove right now, but I will tell you what, I think you are seeing Trav, Travis [Wear] is starting to really kick in and play the way we know Travis can play. I think Travis and Dave [Wear] have been tremendous as well, and I thought Tony [Parker] gave us a real spark as well. Top to bottom I think all 10 guys who played, played very well.”

“Well, we’ve been doing a pretty good job with that. We are a good offensive rebounding team, we’ve been a good rebounding team. We got out and ran. I thought we started the game well. I don’t know if it was 11-5 or 13-5, but when you come on the road and immediately get a three to four possession lead early, it can at least set a tone. It doesn’t mean that you are going to retain that all the time, but we never looked back. I don’t know if we trailed at all in tonight’s game, and that is hard to do in this building. It is a great credit to the guys. They were focused, they concentrated, they made shots. As a team they had 21 assists and six turnovers. You know you’ve got 10,000 people in here, and you are on the road and to only have six turnovers, that is a credit to the young men in that locker room.”
