#11, Mychal Mulder, Senior, Guard

On this being his best game of the year…

“Yeah, I feel like I played pretty well – fighting hard. A lot of opportunity to perform is what I think it is mostly, but I was happy with how I played.”

On the timeout after De’Aaron Fox fouled out…
“In that time of the game, it is just time to win. We lose De’Aaron to five fouls and that is something that we are going to have to deal with once in awhile. But, you know, we still have a lot of guys and guards who create plays and finish at the rim and play hard defense. So, you know, it was winning time from there on out and we just tried to push the lead as much as we could.” 

On shooting from distance…
“We shot pretty well. None of us really said anything. I feel that we see each other shoot the ball well everyday. So, we expect the work we put in, we expect to reap the rewards from that.” 

On 3-point percentage being higher than the free-throw percentage…
“I bet it was. You know, for some reason, we are kind of up and down with the free throws, but that is something we will continue to work on. I know these guys are really willing to keep working hard and get better in that area. So, that is something that shouldn’t be a problem much longer.” 

#3, Bam Adebayo, Freshman, Forward

On why they got so much energy when Fox fouled out…
“We had to pick up the energy because we lost a very important player. The team came together and we played even harder because we had to make up for the what we were losing defensively and offensively.”

On Cal saying he doesn’t like coaching when he has to fight to get the team to do what he wants them to do…
“That just comes with discipline. We are a young team and today we weren’t disciplined enough. But, we will keep working on that with more games during the season.” 

On how Wenyen Gabriel has been playing…
“Wenyen is a great player, and he just had a massive game today. He had 16 rebounds and the balls were going his way. We applaud him for it and hope he can keep doing this going forward.” 

On free-throw shooting… 
“When you’re the first person to go to the line, you’re supposed to make both of them and I missed both of them. So we are going to get in the gym, work on our free-throws and come back better.”

#32, Wenyen Gabriel, Freshman, Forward

On the progress he has made over the last month …

“I think I’m about to start taking big strides now. I’ve been building my Confidence, and defensively I’ve been focused on defensive rebounding lately.”

On how his early 3-pointers boosted his confidence …
“I think that had a lot to do with it. I have had confidence issues lately, but coming back and those two 3’s showed it with the rebounds tonight.”

On how well it felt to start shooting well early …
“It felt good. It kind of felt like I am going back to how I was, how I was playing in high school. My confidence is coming back and I’m about to start playing more aggressive.”

On what brought back his confidence …
“I mean I think seeing those two shots fall early and getting those rebounds tonight, teammates sharing the ball more, and just practicing everyday and getting better.”
