Washington Head Coach Lorenzo Romar
On the game...
"What a college basketball game. Both teams played, I thought, at an extremely high level. Both teams were competing. It was obvious something was on the line for both teams."
On playing must-win games...
"The anxiety that you may have as a team, knowing that you're one and done, is something that's been going on with our team for quite a while. The stakes haven't been as high as they're going to be now."
On late free throws...
"Venoy (Overton) could literally be 0-for-10 going into a game, but when the game's on the line he rarely misses."
On idea of Pac-10 receiving one NCAA Tournament bid...
"Once a statement is made publicly, sometimes it gains a lot of momentum and begins to snowball. But there's no way in the world I thought we were only going to have one team from the Pac-10 in the NCAA Tournament."
On Venoy Overton's 3-pointer...
"There are some guys, that when the game's on the line, you don't mind them taking that shot."
Washington forward Quincy Pondexter
On NCAA Tournament chances entering Pac-10 Tournament...
"We told each other, `If we handle business, we don't need a committee to determine if we're good enough. We'll be automatically in.'"
