" I had been struggling all night trying to get a shot off, and I finally made the last two."

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

"Tonight was a hard battle. We were fighting uphill all night, and credit Texas, they got off to a good start and played really well. They made it tough on us on the offensive end. But I'm proud of our guys for hanging in there. It wasn't a thing of beauty by any means, but our guys kept battling and kept working. We made enough shots to get back within range midway in the second half, couldn't quite get over the hump, but we made some good stops defensively. Overall I'm proud of our guys. It was a tough win." - Lon Kruger on the game in general

"He made good plays down the stretch and on that play he had the option to attack and get to the rim or do what he did. It was a tough play, but it was a special shot. I thought their defender did a really good job guarding him, but Buddy still made a tough shot." - Lon Kruger on Buddy Hield's game-winning shot

"He's a terrific player. There's a reason he's the best player in the country. I thought our guys, for most of the game, did a really good job on him, given how good of a player he is. Down the stretch, he really was aggressive and got to the foul line and obviously hit that big shot." - Texas head coach Shaka Smart on Buddy Hield

"We were trying to find a flow offensively. We were trying to get stops, and run out in transition where we could get the momentum going and create easier buckets so we could catch up. - Isaiah Cousins on trying to get something going offensively

"I just hit a tough shot. Coach drew the play and I was able to go out and execute it and make the shot. I had been struggling all night trying to get a shot off, and I finally made the last two." - Buddy Hield on his game-winning shot

"It was tough. We couldn't get anything going. Luckily we were playing good defense and working together, and that's something we have to keep doing as a team." - Ryan Spangler on being in a defensive battle
