UNM vs. The Citadel
Head Coach Steve Alford Quotes

Opening Statement:

"We have done a really good job at home and I really think since California we have had a great demeanor on the court. Now on our way to Las Vegas we are going to play very good opponents and we are ready for them. We need to make great strides still. Competition just continues to get tougher but I thought our guys did a really good job and a lot of good things tonight."

On Drew Gordon:

"He did a lot of great things today. He hasn't played in thirteen months and he was just getting his feet wet. The other players did a really good job of looking out for him. I like where we are. We are very deep."

On his first game back:

"It was the first-game jitters, in the tenth game of the season. I've just got to get back into game shape."

On his injured knee:

"It feels great. The surgery went really well. I'm back after about a month."

Junior Philip McDonald

On going hard early in the game:

"I am just doing what is necessary for the game. I was just trying to get my rebounds and be patient. I'm still trying to do my job."
