Head coach Tim Duryea
"That was a great college basketball game. We did a good job of hanging in there and staying with it. Our guys did a good job of following the game plan. When you play them, you have to take away the 3-point line. When you do that you are at risk of giving up some layups and looking a little crazy on some plays, but you've got to stick with it. Our guys did a great job of taking away the 3-point line.
"Offensively in the second half we grew up a lot. We had some tough possessions where we would have settled for an average jump shot in the past, but we kept driving the ball to the lane, getting the ball to the rim and then kicking out for 3's. We really grew up on both ends of the floor."
On Shane Rector's performance down the stretch
"Shane was tremendous. He not only had offensive duties, but had a lot of pressure on him to guard (Brandon) Randolph in the middle of the floor when you are hugging up to take the 3 away. There is a lot of space for Randolph to operate and he, Koby (McEwen) and Norbert Janicek did a good job of containing Randolph. We could have made it a little easier on ourselves by making some free throws, but there wasn't a guy on our bench that doubted that Shane wasn't going to make those last two. That's what he does."
Senior guard Shane Rector
"UVU is a great team and we've seen them beat BYU and a couple of other teams. We knew that we had to come in here and battle and that is what we did. We grinded it out and came out with the W."
On the final play of the game
"Coach drew up a play and told me to get the ball. Ngor (Barnaba) was going to set a screen and he told me to make something happen. That is what I did. I wanted the ball in my hand and I made something happen."
On winning the game with his free throws
"I had some struggles from the free throw line before that, but if you are an Aggie fan you know I don't miss those last-second ones for the game. I just went up there, I wasn't worried about it. I was cool, calm and collected and knocked them down."
