Utah State Head Coach Stew Morrill...

"Well the best news of the day is that Utah State won a WAC football championship. Having a really good football program is so important for every university. It just helps in so many ways: community, university, everything. I couldn't be happier for those guys. It's a hell of a deal. We've been fortunate to be in their shoes a few times. Winning a championship is a wonderful thing. Everybody involved has to pat themselves on the back and feel great about it.

"As for us, we've still got a ways to go. We were in great shape there in the second half but then we let one guy kind of get going and we couldn't stop him. He just lit us up for awhile. Statistically we played pretty well: 21 assists, nine turnovers, we shot the ball well and out-rebounded them. It doesn't seem like it should have been quite that close. They've got some good athletes that kept playing and made it interesting. We're glad to get a win, now we move on to next week. We've got a week to try and get better before we play Weber State, so that's good."

Junior Guard TeNale Roland...

On difference between Junior College and Division I:

"So far, it has been the pace of the games. Players are a lot faster, they're taller people and just the pace of the game is faster. It is also more physical but Coach has done a good job of getting us in the weight room this summer and bulking us up."

On having seven assists and no turnovers tonight:

"Yes, Coach Morrill was pretty happy. He said something about it in the locker room but I want to congratulate my teammates who knocked down shots when I got them the ball. They kept shooting so I give the credit to them."

TAMU-Corpus Christi Head Coach Willis Wilson...

"There's no question that progress was made, but you can't be satisfied with progress. There are so many what-ifs in certain things. We've made progress, but now we have to see how we respond to another loss."
