UW Head Coach Lorenzo Romar
"This is one of the best feelings in sports, to go on the road and be down against a physical, scrappy, hard, great defensive team at their home and come out on top. We played tough and physical ourselves."
"We were down in a hostile environment to a tough, gritty team in USC, this win is as good as it gets in sports."
"Quincy [Pondexter] was just a man out there today from the tip. No question he is a guy that you have to pay attention to. Of course you don't leave Brockman open and you must pay attention to Dentmon and Thomas because they are six and five in Pac-10 scoring, respectively."
"USC was trying to take Brockman out of the game. By the time that they focused on Quincy he had already done his damage."
"Venoy [Overton] was the catalyst today. He had a couple of steals and loosened us up today. He has been playing a significant role for us the past couple of weeks."
"This was a team effort. When the chips are down, with so much at stake we really came down and played gritty as a team. We were not going to put up with losing the game. When we began to put pressure on them, I saw at that point that we were showing life and we just kept building upon that."
"I am (ecstatic) that we found a way to win. Much like the way we played them at home, we shot 37 percent and had 16 turnovers and we were still able to find a way to win."
