Washington Head Coach Lorenzo Romar

On a turning point in the second half:
"It became clear that they were going to pack it in all night and make us shoot threes. They got in an offensive rhythm. We did a much better job in the second half of using the clock to move the ball."

On preparation for Stanford:
"We have had the benefit of playing every team twice. There aren't a whole lot of straight surprises. The beauty of tournament play is that we have time to get together, get rested, and get ready to play tomorrow. We have to be ready to play any team because it's one loss and we're out."

Quincy Pondexter

On a turning point in the second half:
"At halftime we came together collectively. We wanted to come out and get that win. We were focused and turned up the intensity on the defensive end. We cleaned stuff up and took care of business in the second half."

On not feeling well:
"I'm getting there. I am feeling a lot better than I did earlier in the week. My teammates did a great job helping me tonight."

Isaiah Thomas

On the Pac-10:
"In this league anybody can beat anybody on any given day."

Oregon State head coach Craig Robinson

On keeping Washington down for a half:
"We knew it was going to happen. All we talked about at half time was `they're going to make a run, they're going to make a run.' They're just a good team. They kept their cool and we were just hoping to hang on for a tad bit longer."

On starting freshman Angus Brandt:
"That one position, that four spot, has been troublesome for us all year so we've been trying different things. At practice everyone gets a chance to audition for it and he had a really good practice."

On Josh Tarver missing the dunk
"One play does not define a game. It's a shame he missed that dunk but they didn't win by two the won by seven. It was a lot of plays. That missed dunk was not why we lost the game."h

Oregon State Guard Calvin Haynes

On Washington's second half:
"They came out with a head of steam in the second half. They played a phenomenal second half. They beat us up on the boards. What else can you say when you have a team like that barking at you? You have to bark back. I don't really know what else to say. They beat us up in the second half."

On OSU's first half:
"We had a really good first half. We got off to a good start, made some shots. We were confident. Coach said that they were going to come out with even more intensity so we just couldn't get over that hump."

On what Washington did to cause problems:
"I think they started to getting to the middle more rather than just keeping them on the perimeter and making them shoot jump shots. Isaiah [Thomas] and Pondexter started getting more of the ball and getting more aggressive."

Oregon State Guard Josh Tarver

On Washington's comeback:
"We had them on the ropes and just made a few mistakes, turnovers, missed layups and free throws. You can't win a game like that if you are going to do stuff like that. You have to have a good forty minutes against Washington. You can't have a good half."

On anticipating the Washington run:
"We knew the run was going to come, the question was whether we were going to withstand it. Just a few mistakes and obviously we didn't. Missed lay-ups and everything, missed free throws and careless turnovers, that stuff will cost you the game."
