    On the high scoring game...

    "Neither one of us could really guard each other, we just couldn't guard them for longer periods of time. I'm really impressed with Iowa, but I love my team. In a tough atmosphere with some new faces, new roles, we answered just about every charge we just didn't have much at the end. Give credit to Iowa, they made big plays and made big free throws down the stretch. It was a great game and they are a heck of a team."

    On Sherman's play...

    "We need him to be a main guy for us. Last year he was a little bit up and down. For him to have a night like this in this atmosphere I think is very important. He's a fifth year senior and he should feel like he is a main guy. I think this will be something he can really grow from."

    On Iowa's depth...

    "Their depth wore on us, there's no question, not only in transition but on the back board. We kind of shortened our bench a little bit and it helped us with our offensive efficiency but fatigue maybe caught up to us a little bit at times. Iowa just has a style of play that's hard to deal with. They are good offensively and have a lot of bodies."

    On Fran...

    "Fran is a good friend. We've known each other since I was an assistant at Duke and he was at Notre Dame and we were in the same gym trying to recruit the same guys. He's done a fabulous job here. I'm thrilled for him. This is all about methodically building a program and it's a blue print. Iowa has great momentum and since they've beat us I hope they win every game."

    On the zone defense...

    "Every time we played a zone in the first half Iowa hit a three. In the second half and it gave us a little momentum and it slowed them down and made them shoot some jump shots."
