#1, Skal Labissiere, F

On how comfortable he is now compared to the beginning of the season…
“I’m feeling a lot more comfortable, Playing hard. We have been pushing each other at practice; therefore my confidence went up a little bit. I feel a lot more comfortable out there.”

On Cal trying to make him play like Karl-Anthony Towns…
“I think at the beginning of the year I had a good start, things didn’t go the way I wanted them to go. I just have to bounce back and I think that’s what I’m doing now. Whatever Coach Cal has for me to do, that’s what I am going to do.”

On how his performance energizes the team and the fans…
“I want to do whatever I can to help my team win. Bring energy off the bench and get my team going. Whatever I have to do I am going to do it.”

On everything finally coming together as a team…
“You can see in the last couple of games we have played, we played with more energy. Everyone is playing their roles now. ”

#13, Isaiah Briscoe, PG

On working out in the mornings …
“Yeah, I’ve been working on my shot just with Rob, the strength and conditioning coach. We have just been getting up everyday at eight just going to work out before classes.“

On how hard the team kept playing, even when the lead grew …
“Oh yeah. You know, refuse to lose. That’s the motto we go by now and every time we go to the locker room coach always says just refuse to lose.” 

On how Coach Cal talked about if they hadn’t lost the Auburn game, they wouldn’t be playing as desperately …
“I mean, we would never know, because we lost the game. We just keep going, taking it game by game.”

On if he feels as if the team is playing desperately …
“Yeah, I think so. It starts on the defensive end.”

#35, Derek Willis, F

On being the spark to the team …
“I don’t think that’s it. I think it’s a lot of Tyler’s (Ulis) doing. There are a lot of great things. I would say the credit probably goes to him.”

On feeling most confident while shooting at this point in his career …
“I always felt that I was a confident shooter. There are always times when you go through rough patches. Right now I’m pretty good I would say.”

On Coach Calipari asking him if he wanted to give minutes back to his teammates …
“It doesn’t matter to me honestly. It’s whoever is going to help the team win and I don’t care if I play five or 40 minutes. I just want to win, so that’s it.”

On having a laissez-faire attitude in the past …
“I guess I could agree with that. Now it’s a little different. My dad made a difference. A lot of where you want to be and you start looking at life in different ways. I wasn’t really being competitive with that. I talked to some friends a lot of older people. Competitiveness doesn’t just transition with basketball. It’s with everyday life. ”
