Anthony Edwards

On having fewer fouls this game…

“I feel like we did a great job taking care of the ball. Sahvir came in, gave us a boost off the bench. Donnell Gresham and Rayshaun came in late in game and helped out. Everyone contributed to this win.”

On his excitement for a dunk…

“Some of it, cause I got my uncle right here (Donnell Gresham) keeping my team in the game. He gets real quiet and just to himself. Most of the excitement I feel is my passion for the game. I just love it. I love what I do. Love my teammates. I love to see everybody happy.”

On if he looks up his numbers…

“Like, they asked me in the locker room, why did I miss that last free throw? I told them all that matters is that we got the win. I don’t really care about having 29 or 28. I can get 30, numbers don’t really matter to me. I am going to miss free thows but that is on my end. I will make sure I get in the gym and work on my free throws for when it comes clutch time. It is okay with me as long as we got the win. That is all that matters. My team is happy so I am happy. We have a great coaching staff.”

On how dangerous is this team…

“I feel like we are extremely dangerous. Like I said (Donnell Gresham) is an old man who can knock the three down. We got Tyree Crump who is a vet who can knock the three down. We got Sahvir Wheeler who is coming down dishing out. We got Rayhaun who can knock the corner down. Amanze can catch hoops. Everybody on the team can contribute in anyway possible.”

On the emphasis in practice of working on getting a fast-break bucket…

“[Getting the ball ahead] is a big emphasis for us in practice. We are a fast team and can play really fast. I don’t think we did that to the best of our ability tonight, but I think as we keep playing together, we can do a better job.”

On the ways Anthony Edwards can impact the game, aside from scoring…

“I think he impacts the game in a lot more ways than scoring, on defense especially. [He gets] deflections and steals. He does a great job rebounding and finds all of us open when passing and gets us open shots.”

On how he feels about the freshmen performing the way they are…

“It makes me very happy. The young guys are stepping up. They are young but all very good players. Anthony (Edwards), Sahvir (Wheeler), Toumani (Camara)– all the freshmen are really good and producing a lot for us.”
