That's a pretty good basketball team. We were very fortunate to win, especially away from home. I thought everyone stepped up tonight with Griffin hurt.

We got a little spurt at the end of the first half, and I think that helped us a little bit. It woke us up.

I think Billy has really understood his role, as far as what the team needs from him, and I think now he feels comfortable in that role. Overall, he?s becoming a more complete player at both ends of the court.

He tries to play within himself. ... He may take a bad shot here and there, but he likes to try to make things happen. He?s worked hard on his game, and I think it?s paid off this year.
