Head coach Brooks Thompson
Opening statement …
“It’s been an up and down year for us, a tough year for a group of great kids. Tonight, their hard work paid off. They’ve come every day and worked hard. They have great character and I’m very proud of each and every one of them. This was a total team effort. We rebounded the ball, guarded them and executed our game plan to perfection. We handled their press and did a great job. We turned it over early in the game, which is uncharacteristic of us. Give Louisiana Tech credit for their defense. We quit turning the ball over and started to score. Then, our defense got better. This was a great team effort and we're obviously excited, but we are focused in on tomorrow too. We’ve been here before and this is not new for us. We’ve won conference tournaments here before and that’s our goal right now."

On moving forward to the semifinals …
"We are going to enjoy this one until we can get together as a staff and find out who we play next. In this league, no matter who we are matched up against, it’s always going to be a tough draw. We have to be sharp and worry about ourselves."

Kannon Burrage, Sr., G
On his hot shooting …
"I was getting open shots. Some weren’t open, but I was feeling good."

Michael Hale III, Sr., G
On how he and his teammates countered Louisiana Tech's size advantage …
"As you can see, I’m not the biggest guy on the court, but my teammates did a good job of spreading the floor for me."

On the team's momentum moving forward …
"We just have to stay together. As long as we do that, we can do a lot. It’s been a tough year, but as long as we keep sticking together, we can do big things the rest of this tournament."
